SEOIs are anonymous evaluations of instructors’ performances throughout the quarter, and provide students the opportunity to openly and honestly evaluate their professors.</p><p>SEOIs will be available on Canvas, in an email sent to each student and at <a href="https://idp.cwu.edu/portalhelper/AppLogin?SEOI" target="_blank">https://idp.cwu.edu/portalhelper/AppLogin?SEOI</a> beginning Monday, May 23 until Sunday, June 5. All students should feel free to respond as honestly as possible, as all submissions are anonymous, and professors do not receive their evaluations until Friday, June 16, several days after grades are due.</p><p>Though students fill out an SEOI for each professor, professors will not receive each student’s evaluation separately. Instead, professors receive comprehensive reports that show how all the students who completed the survey responded to each question. For example, one piece of the SEOI is “Instructor seemed genuinely concerned with whether students learned,” to which students can answer on a range of strongly agree to strongly disagree. In the report, the professor will see how many students answered strongly agree, how many answered strongly disagree, etc.</p><p>The CWU Administration holds student feedback in high regard, so students should take the SEOIs and the outlet they provide seriously. SEOIs are used in the faculty and tenure review processes as well as for the accreditation of CWU. The more students who respond to SEOIs, the more weight they carry.</p><p>For more information, please contact Tom Henderson, Director of Institutional Assessment, at 509-963-2046 or HendersT@cwu.edu.</p></span style="line-height: 1.4;"></span style="line-height: 1.4;"></br></span style="line-height: 1.4;">Wednesday, May 181463588369EQuaAL's Big Queer Dance Party LIVE http://www.cwu.edu/publicity/equaals-big-queer-dance-party-liveThursday, June 2Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:00:00Alumni,Faculty & Staff,Student Life,New Students,Other<p><strong>10 a.m. | East SURC Patio | Free</strong></p><p>Join EQuAl’s Big Queer Dance Party for a day of fun, music and pride swag.
