Research & Evaluation
Our research and evaluation team serves as a consultant for several GEAR UP grantees, private foundations, and a federal First in the World grant. We provide training and technical assistance to both build the capacity of GEAR UP and the broader college access and success community and to help achieve the goals of college readiness programs.
We work with constituents across the nation to promote better data systems, program evaluations, and rigorous research studies. We facilitate webinars, workshops, discussions, and a variety of other specialized training and professional development opportunities for professionals of all experience levels.
We have a long history of working with GEAR UP grantees, institutions of higher education, state agencies, and school districts to help conceptualize and implement effective college access and readiness initiatives. We can help facilitate your needs analysis, support your strategic planning, and help design your programs. In addition, we have a wealth of experience in developing complex partnerships.
NCCEP specializes in creating professional development training programs for your teams. We bring content expertise in multiple fields including leadership development, grant administration and compliance, and the nuts and bolts of effective program implementation. Simply need some support with your own events and training programs? We can help there too. We work with many communities to create training agendas, securing leading experts in the field as guest speakers, and providing on-site assistance and leadership during your event.
