Since 2009, I have been working on non-profit evaluations in the local Boston area. My work is deeply collaborative, partnering with community organizations to better understand processes and impacts of educational interventions on children and families. The Northeastern Public Evaluation Lab (NU-PEL) expands my capacity to meet the evaluation needs of local non-profits. Through consultation expertise, methodological workshops, direct student supervision and software training, NU-PEL supports interdisciplinary evaluation teams that work directly with community partners as they seek to better understand their program’s impact. Beyond practical and logistical support, NU-PEL provides a home base for evaluation work at Northeastern. This evaluation hub connects undergraduate and graduate students with faculty and staff who are deeply passionate about campus-community collaborations.
