CEP helps organizations through tough times

2/10/2009 | By: Staff Report  |

In tough economic times, these are the questions organizations need to ask: What has real lasting impact? What are your organization’s greatest accomplishments and outcomes? What can be improved?

The Center for Program Evaluation (CPE) at the University of Nevada, Reno can help answer those questions and assist organizations in delivering more effective services and programs. CPE will offer a series of free workshops entitled “Making Evaluation Work for You: Enhancing Your Research and Programs through Evaluation.”

These workshops are FREE and open to the community, faculty, staff, and students.
