Our Approach

The RED Department subscribes to the Center for Educational Opportunity Programs’ mission of building a legacy of learners and leaders through a commitment to educational equity. Staff leverage research, evaluation and dissemination techniques to assist clients with building their program’s legacy of learners and leaders. To accomplish this mission, the RED Department embraces a utilization-focused framework, which emphasizes the active involvement of clients and stakeholders throughout the research, evaluation and dissemination process. In practice, staff intentionally build in training opportunities to equip clients and project stakeholders with the skills and resources needed to successfully navigate and share the data related to their project.
