Community Engagement & Evaluation


Our Community Engagement and Evaluation program designs, implements and evaluates projects within health, education, workforce development entities to achieve outcomes based on evidence-based quality standards in an efficient and cost-effective manner.


Technical and technological experts work at multiple levels within organizations to determine needs by conducting needs assessments. The outcomes guide the development of an evaluation plan including data collection, instruments design, and plan for analysis. A variety of research methods (e.g., surveys, interviews, focus groups, database applications, content analysis, archival data analysis) are used to assist organizations in clarifying goals, identifying appropriate measures for determining achievement, and building logic models.


We customize tools and procedures to meet the needs of sponsors and are uniquely positioned to contribute to new and continuing interventions based upon productive working relationships with state and local partners.
