WHO WE ARE

Our Equity, 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.

WHAT WE DO

Technical experts work with organizations and communities to assist in achieving desired outcomes, developing plans, conducting needs assessments, collecting data, designing evaluation plans, and providing other forms of technical assistance. A variety of research and evaluation methods (e.g., surveys, interviews, focus groups, database applications, content analysis, archival data analysis) are used to clarify goals, build logic models, and identify appropriate methods for addressing significant issues.
