The Office of Research and Economic Development is teaming up with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Methodology and Evaluation Research Core Facility to host a luncheon presentation on evaluating broader impacts activities. Register here by April 18 to attend the event.

The luncheon is 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Prem S. Paul Research Center, Room 152, 2200 Vine St.

An increasing number of public and private funding sponsors expect applicants to engage in broader impacts and outreach activities related to their research projects. Along with that comes an expectation that projects include a mechanism for assessing the success of broader impacts activities. To help University of Nebraska faculty develop assessment plans, MERC evaluation experts will provide an overview of formative and outcome evaluation practices for broader impacts activities. The presentation will include case studies on using evaluation outcomes to improve programs and will cover topics such as estimates for timelines and costs associated with evaluations.

This event is free and open to faculty from all University of Nebraska campuses. A complimentary lunch will be provided. Seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis.

For additional information, contact Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, 402-472-2894.
