OAERS Initiatives

Nonprofit Evaluation Support Program

nesp_logoMany nonprofit organizations seek support in evaluating their programs and building their own capacity for program evaluation activities. In an effort to address this need, OAERS has partnered with the SERVE Center of UNCG to develop the Nonprofit Evaluation Support Program (NESP). Leveraging the program evaluation expertise of SERVE and OAERS, NESP offers program evaluation support to a wide range of nonprofit organizations in the greater Greensboro area. Much of the evaluation support provided by NESP is delivered by graduate students of the Department of Educational Research Methodology (ERM) at UNCG, which houses OAERS. In this manner, NESP provides evaluation support to community partners while offering valuable educational experiences to graduate students in ERM.
