Coalition for Diverse Language Communities (CDLC)
The Coalition for Diverse Language Communities (CDLC) was founded more than two years ago by Professors Micheline Chalhoub-Deville, Colleen Fairbanks, and Barbara Levin. Its goal is to promote innovative, relevant, and collaborative work in the areas of community-engaged research, outreach and advocacy, policy work, and professional development. The CDLC aims to be a catalyst for innovative, relevant, collaborative, and policy-related research, leveraging the synergy and knowledge of faculty, staff, students, and communities locally, nationally, and globally.
The Office of Assessment, Evaluation, and Research Services (OAERS)
The Office of Assessment, Evaluation, and Research Services (OAERS) is a division of the Department of Educational Research Methodology (ERM) at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The purpose of OAERS rests at the intersection of two goals. The first goal is to offer exceptional consulting services and technical resources in the areas of assessment, program evaluation, and data analysis to individuals and organizations in the Triad, North Carolina, and beyond. The second goal is to provide graduate students in ERM extensive hands-on applied experiences to support their training and professional growth. Through meeting these two goals, OAERS is able to deliver valuable research and evaluation support to organizations while providing a rich training ground for the next generation of leaders in the fields of assessment, program evaluation, and data analysis.
