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.

The Starfish

L'Étoile de Mer (English: The Starfish) is a 1928 film directed by Man Ray. The film is based on a script by Robert Desnos and depicts a couple (Alice Prin and André de la Rivière) acting through scenes that are shot out of focus.
