Evaluation at the U

Government and community organizations have significant evaluation needs. CURA has worked to meet these needs with research assistants and development of an Evaluation.umn.edu website that provides information about University resources that could assist with evaluation, plus educational resources to help help organizations understand and implement their own evaluations. Most recently, CURA is working with Jean King and faculty from four colleges who are looking to form a new Minnesota Evaluation Studies Institute (MESI), providing both enhanced academic programs at the University and low-cost evaluation services to non-profit organizations. CURA's evaluation website is being transferred to MESI. A spring symposium has been held for 15 years by this group and may be expanded to present training workshops at other times of the year and in other parts of the state.
