Graduate Student Portfolio

Graduate Student Portfolio

The graduate student portfolio is a mechanism for students to convey their achievement of the core competencies and an opportunity to reflect on progress and achievements from the first year in graduate school.

All students (MPH, MS, PhD) are required to submit the portfolio by the end of the first year of study or after completion on core courses, should that come later. Information on the process and timeline will be provided to students in the spring quarter. Using the portfolio template students prepare a self-assessment; a resume; share decisions about their culminating project; and provide examples of how they have met program and degree competencies.

Each portfolio will be assigned to one or more NSP faculty members for review. Faculty will meet to collectively discuss the portfolios and an assigned faculty member will then provide feedback.
