Each year students make a professional portfolio presentation to the faculty. The
purposes of this presentation are:
To serve as an assessment of the student's professional development.
To impress upon the student the importance of having a current portfolio reflecting
their professional work and achievements.
To prepare the student for the experience of presenting themselves and their work
to prospective employers.
Typically performance faculty attends director's portfolio reviews and design faculty
attends designer's portfolio reviews. However, any faculty may attend any review.
Students are expected to dress for the presentation and comport yourself as you would
for an actual job interview.
The Portfolio Presentations are typically scheduled at the beginning of the Spring
semester. Director and designer reviews are scheduled separately.
