Student comments…

“I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for your kindness and support this semester! You are why I am still in the program. And just so you know, others agree with me.”

“This is an excellent, and practical course. It is well designed, well thought out, and offered many opportunities to apply the material we were learning. I am so very grateful to have taken the course from Dr. Duffy. I appreciated all of his thoughtful feedback.”

I can confidently say that I have learned more in this course than other courses I have taken in the past semesters. Professor Duffy has a lot of knowledge in program evaluation and leads students towards the right path in discussions. I am glad I took this course with him.”
