LEAD-center-logoAbout LEAD

At The LEAD Center, We advance the quality of teaching and learning by evaluating the effectiveness and impact of educational innovations, policies, and practices within higher education. Rigorous, theory-driven methods and interdisciplinary collaborations anchor our approach to evaluation, leading to the adaptation and dissemination of evidence-based strategies in service to student learning.

The Health Issues of Women Veterans Fellowship Program provides two years of post residency, post-doctoral research, education, and clinical learning opportunities to eligible physicians and associated health professionals. Fellows spend approximately 75 percent of their time in research and education and 25 percent in clinical care at selected VA sites. Mentors of national stature provide guidance to fellows in rich learning environments. Graduates are expected to be role models in leading, developing, conducting, and evaluating innovative research, education, and clinical care in health issues pertaining to women veterans.

Get to Know LEAD

LEAD-center-logoThe LEAD Center is comprised of professional staff who conduct program evaluation within and about higher education both locally and nationally.

LEAD, by design…
We work collaboratively with faculty and staff who are Principal Investigators (PIs) and are in need of consultation or services to propose or conduct evaluation of a grant. We build logic models and design evaluation plans that are aligned with a project’s specific aims and objectives to improve learning in postsecondary institutions.

LEAD, in the right direction…
When funded, we provide you with formative evaluation to ensure that you are meeting your goals and to help you improve the implementation of your project.

LEAD, with evidence…
We collect and analyze data to assess the efficacy of your program and to provide you and your funding agency with the results from your evaluation and a summative report.

LEAD, with integrity…
We provide an objective view of your project’s implementation, and ensure the ethical treatment of human subjects, confidentiality of your data, and the highest standards of practice in evaluation.

LEAD, so others will follow…
We help you to disseminate evaluation findings and if applicable, publish them broadly so that others can learn from you.

LEAD, the way…
We evaluate locally funded projects, as well as those funded by the federal government and private foundations or trusts.
