About WEC

WEC is a unit within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) at UW-Madison that conducts and supports program evaluations within the preK-12 education system through partnerships with school districts, professional associations, state agencies, education-based community organizations, and Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs).

In addition to the network of experienced evaluation professionals, WEC includes an outreach clinic that provides services to small projects through applied training of graduate students in evaluation and research methods.

About Nicole Bowman-Farrell, Ph.D.

Nicole Bowman-Farrell (Mohican/Munsee), Ph.D. is a Researcher & Evaluator with WEC. Culturally and contextually responsive educational research, evaluation, and policy studies are central to the work Nicole has carried out over nearly two decades. By working “with” people and not “on” them Nicole is known as a responsive and effective multi-jurisdictional and government systems subject matter expert. She has been a leader on educational and government initiatives where Tribal and non-Tribal agencies partner to improve outcomes, capacities, and competencies for more effective, responsive, and impactful programming. As an evaluator, trainer, and technical assistance provider Dr. Bowman has increased the skills, competencies, and capacities for many university, non-profit, and for profit academic organizations working with Indigenous and other marginalized populations. In May 2015 Nicole graduated with her PhD from the Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis Department at the University of WI-Madison. Her multi-jurisdictional educational policy study was the first in the country to examine how Tribal and non-Tribal educational policy is developed and implemented as public and Tribal governments educate Indigenous students attending K-12 public schools. Dr. Bowman currently is an active elected leader, international annual conference trainer, and/or an appointed advisory member for several work groups under the American Evaluation Association, the Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment, and the Eastern Evaluation Research Society
