Faculty evaluations (please)

As you know, faculty/course evaluations are being given online this fall. Eligible students will be sent an e-mail announcement with complete instructions. The evaluation period opens Monday, December 1st, and closes on Tuesday, December 9th, at 5:00 p.m. RESPONSES ARE ANONYMOUS.
The University of Miami would like to create a climate where students understand the importance of evaluations and where most participate. Should any student not receive the evaluation/e-mail, the survey site link also appears under the Course Registration menu in myUM as "Submit an instructor evaluation online" or under "My CoursEvals" on the Blackboard home page.
