Center projects are supported through funding from external donors and agencies as well as by University resources. In designing and implementing projects, CUE establishes dynamic partnerships with academic institutions, think tanks, non-governmental and community organizations, and governmental agencies throughout the United States. We welcome inquiries about potential partnerships, collaborative work, or evaluations of existing work by other organizations. Our team includes a range of methodologists who are skilled in process and impact evaluations as well as a range of quantitative, experimental and qualitative methodologies.
