Our ServicesContact Us

Providing high quality, ethically defensible, and culturally responsive evaluation since 2004. 

Collaborative Partners

We believe that our role is to support organizations to reach their full potential and meet their goals through a collaborative, data-driven process. We work in partnership with clients who are their own best experts and engage in participatory methods across each stage of an evaluation.

Orientation to Learning

We believe evaluation is foundational to learning.  Evaluation offers the possibility for data-driven decision making and deeply analytical reflection, growth, and transformation processes. Our approach to learning emphasizes the requisite foundations of trust, teambuilding, collaboration, and power equity. 

Culturally Responsive & Equitable Evaluation

We believe that as evaluators we have a responsibility to conduct evaluation that is culturally relevant and in service of equity. This translates as an effort to conduct evaluation that is in service of equity, and race equity being foundational to this work.




Making an Impact

The Evaluation Center has extensive experience providing program evaluation to a wide variety of clients from schools, non-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, community groups, and government agencies.  We work collaboratively with our clients to promote evidence-informed programs, practices, and policies by using rigorous, innovative evaluation processes.
