Evaluation and Research Services

We can evaluate your program, partner with you on the evaluation section of your grant application, or conduct custom research activities.

The Evaluation Center employs a team of multi-disciplinary professional evaluators who are available to conduct evaluations and provide custom research services for your project.  These activities fall into three main categories.
