Faculty Advisor Site Visits

Co-op Site Visits

The semester calendar specifies that the co-op faculty advisor will visit the students’ work sites to monitor their progress.  Suggested areas to discuss with the worksite supervisor:

  • Student performance/progress related to learning objectives
  • Student attendance/completion of required hours (if applicable)
  • General work habits of student (e.g. professionalism, work ethic, etc.)
  • Technical instructional requirements specific to the program and site
  • Employer mid-term and final evaluations
  • Closure of the co-op experience
  • The organization’s willingness to continue to hire Montclair State co-op students

Work Site Evaluation

Faculty advisors are asked to complete a work site evaluation for each site visit conducted.
