Randi Korn & Associates, Inc. is assisting the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement in evaluating the professional impact of the SENCER-ISE Civic Engagement Partnership Support Awards program. This will be done through formative and summative evaluation over the three-year life of the grant. Additionally, Randi Korn & Associates, Inc. will be providing guidance for the SENCER-ISE Awardee Partnerships as they conduct evaluations of their projects.

Randi Korn & Associates conducted interviews with the SENCER-ISE partners in April and May of 2015.
