Student Internship Performance Evaluation

LAS 505 / LAS 605 / LAS 506 / LAS 606 – Program of Latin American Studies at the University of Miami

This should not take more than 15-20 minutes!

Thank you for serving as an internship (or civic engagement) site supervisor in connection with one of the following courses: LAS 505 / LAS 605, Internship in Latin American Studies; or LAS 506 / LAS 606, Civic Engagement in Latin American Studies.  These courses are offered through the Program of Latin American Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences.  The courses are offered to highly motivated students eager to gain more practical ‘real world’ experience, who are then challenged to apply that experience back to their interdisciplinary coursework.

To assess how the student has performed under your site supervision in the internship (or civic engagement) position, it is essential that we obtain your feedback.  Students will not have access to this survey, and the results will be kept in strict confidence.  Your completed and submitted evaluation will become a contributing component worth 15% of the student-intern’s (or civic-engager’s) overall grade in the course.  Should there be feedback you wish to provide, apart from this evaluation, you are welcome to contact me directly.  Meanwhile, we also encourage internship (or civic engagement) site supervisors to express their feedback to the student-interns (or civic engagers) directly, to make the student-interns (or civic engagers) more aware of their strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis the internship (or civic engagement) experience for their future benefit.  Student-interns (or civic engagers) need both positive and constructive criticism so they can be prepared for future experiences in the workplace.

Kindly complete and submit this evaluation as soon as possible, to ensure there will be sufficient time to review it prior to upcoming final grade submission deadlines.

As each semester ends, and we look forward to observing the student-interns (and civic engagers) deliver their oral presentations on their internship (or civic engagement project) experience and the ways they have connected it back to their academic coursework, it is with tremendous gratitude that, on behalf of the University, I ask you to complete this evaluation.  Again, thank you for your willingness to work with our students.  Moreover, please be certain to let me know if you would like to supervise students in internships (or civic engagement projects) again, next semester, or over the summer, so that we can begin the process of vetting and presenting you with qualified candidates.
