Evaluating the impact and progress of nonprofit programs is essential to confronting disparities and advancing equity. This course reviews qualitative, quantitative and participatory methods to recognize the value and constraints of various approaches to data collection and analysis. By contextualizing evaluation methods, students will learn to engage people most impacted by nonprofit programs in order to identify relevant indicators of change and measure program performance. Students examine relationships between people, groups and institutions to help explain collective impact. Students practice and compare methodologies to assess program effectiveness and community impact with an emphasis on racial equity.
