The Counselor Education Department requires faculty supervisors to conduct a “site
visit” with each site supervisor during each semester of practicum and internship.
The site visit is designed to monitor student progress and address areas of concern.
It takes place during weeks 5–8 of the semester.
Students are responsible for working with the site and faculty supervisors to schedule
the visit during the first two weeks of the semester.
Site visits last approximately 60 minutes or longer if there are concerns or specific
items that need to be addressed.
Best practice is for the faculty and site supervisors to attend the meeting for a
candid conversation. The student is not required to be in attendance but may be invited.
The mid-semester evaluation will be reviewed and discussed. Site supervisors should
complete the mid-semester evaluation before the meeting.
Any student professional development topics should be addressed during the meeting.
The site and faculty supervisors will create a plan created to support the student.
The faculty supervisor will provide the plan details to the students. Both supervisors
will provide support and assess if the goals for the plan were met within the designated
Additional support to the site supervisor is available via the zoom teleconference
sessions (please see schedule add a link to take them to the schedule).
