Our evaluation philosophy:

Our evaluation philosophy lies in a collaborative approach where we intend to assist program planners, developers, and implementers make sense of multiple sources of data for program improvement. We believe that when data and information sources are used appropriately, decisions can and should be made based on empirical evidence, nor opinion or ideology. Our faculty and staff seek to collect the highest quality of data by including the stakeholders in decisions concerning research and/or evaluative questions and using methods of triangulation to ensure adequate coverage of possible information sources and insight.
