  Course Description
Program evaluation is an important aspect of designing and executing effective programs in nonprofit and public organizations. Program managers and organizational leaders need to be able to assess whether the programs and policies that they have put in place serve those individuals and groups that they are intended to serve, and do so efficiently and ethically. Funders, policymakers, and government officials also rely on program evaluations to help determine whether their resources are being utilized appropriately, and which programs they should continue to support. This course provides students with an overview of the frameworks, tools, and methodologies used to perform a program evaluation. Students will have an opportunity to practice some of the skills involved in evaluation, and to work together with classmates to create a sample program evaluation.
