The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is once again in the throes of collecting Exit Interview data as we approach graduation. These faculty/administrator-led interviews allow us to hear directly from the best source of information about our programs – the student.
The Office of Assessment (OA) is currently collecting graduate student exit interview data for the 5th consecutive year. As this program has transitioned from a pilot to a yearly occurrence, the OA continues to work with faculty to conduct meaningful and deep interviews of students within our college that have finished their MS or PhD in any one of our graduate programs. Along with the long-standing PharmD Exit Interview process, the OA and Committee on Assessment and Outcomes takes pride in being able to provide qualitative student-generated data back to program directors and departments, so that change can be made within programs. We often hear that this information informs our yearly assessment matrix process, as programs monitor their learning goals and outcomes. Real change starts with data collection, and these interviews allow us to work toward closing the loop.
This year’s PharmD Exit Interview will kick off on March 3rd.
