Our Social Impact

The Center for Research and Evaluation works with and for organizations all over the country. Many of these organizations are other informal learning environments (i.e., science centers, museums [of all kinds], visitor centers, zoo, etc.); others are universities or other entities whose work impacts learning in informal settings or at the intersection of informal and formal learning. In order to quantify Lifelong Learning Group’s impact, it helps to understand that our mission is to generate knowledge (through research and evaluation) and to share knowledge (through dissemination).
