Office of Evaluation and Research Partnership
The Office of Evaluation and Research Partnership (O-EARP) utilizes evaluation and associated responsive and community-engaged research to improve initiatives’ practice, to augment impact, and to advance evaluation and responsive practice and itself.
This initiative is a collaboration between the Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) and Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). We serve as a coordinated and interdisciplinary hub that unites foundational work underway at SSRI at and CTSI; in particular, we align SSRI’s Applied Research, Evaluation, and Engagement (AREE) team and CTSI’s Evaluation & Strategic Planning team.
Our combined efforts facilitate leadership in evaluation and associated research partnership across the university, and they provide a facilitated mechanism to offer specialized expertise to university and community entities. In addition, our ability to draw on and bring together diverse disciplinary bases, including across the social and clinical/translational sciences, can build critical learnings to inform and advance both research and evaluation practice and ultimate societal improvement.
