Department of Human Services Field Supervisors
Removal from a placement setting
Any student whose performance is evaluated as unsafe, substandard or professionally inappropriate by the seminar instructor, in consultation with the field coordinator or the field supervisor, may be removed from the placement setting and potentially the practicum/internship class. Additional sanctions may be sought through the MSU Denver Student Judicial Process for any violation of the Student Code of Conduct. For details, see the Student Conduct website at http://www.msudenver.edu/deanofstudents/studentconduct/.
In order to avoid a situation that may call for a student’s removal from a placement site, field supervisors are strongly encouraged to deal with concerns in supervision meetings with the student and to contact the seminar instructor to discuss the concern as quickly as possible. Early intervention is crucial to student success.
