Schedule a Consult

I am consistently overwhelmed by the quality of work & quality of service provided by CCPEG. They have been a great partner in conceptualizing projects, building databases, and creating tools for data visualization. The staff regularly demonstrate their mastery of program evaluation while bringing flexibility and compassion to the work. As a customer, I am 100% satisfied. As a UM SSW alumni, I am proud of this innovative training opportunity offered to current students & recent grads.

Our Approach

Program Evaluation is the use of rigorous research and evaluation methods to help organizations articulate their programs, define performance metrics, and measure outcomes.

Our Center uses a utilization-focused approach to evaluation. We engage our clients throughout the entire evaluation process to insure that the evaluation is driven by their needs. We will facilitate the use of results by the organization to develop and improve their programming. Our utilization-focused evaluation practices often include:

  • Involving multiple stakeholders throughout the evaluation process
  • Convening an evaluation steering committee
  • Utilizing data visualization best practices
  • Facilitating data interpretation meetings

As Social Work evaluators, our professional Social Work ethics are at the core of our work. We build our work on the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics and the American Evaluation Association's Guiding Principles. We pride ourselves on our commitment to understanding and assisting organizations in meeting their organizational goals and providing the best services possible to their clients. As Social Workers, we bring to the evaluation our standards as well as our understanding of community-based organizations and programs, systems-level thinking, and cultural humility.
