Confidentiality of Course Evaluation and Feedback

In compliance with accrediting bodies (HLC, ARC-PA, and COCA), the evaluation process is conducted confidentially for all programs, including all courses, and clinical clerkships/rotations. Evaluative comments are shared with the appropriate faculty and administrators, and the identity of the students and their connected comments is normally kept confidential. However, there are parameters in which the identity of a student in any program may be discovered. In rare cases where a student implicitly or explicitly suggests or threatens harm towards themselves or others, or reports sexual misconduct, or an unprofessional, discriminatory, dangerous, or illegal clinical environment the identity of that student and their connected feedback/comments can be revealed through the procedures of this policy.
