The Evaluation Toolkit and Manual is a collaboration between the Center for Global Initiatives, and Evaluation, Assessment, and Policy Connections (EvAP), both at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

In developing this product, we worked with state and national university-based K-12 Outreach Programs at Appalachian State University, Western Carolina University, UNC-Charlotte, Elizabeth City State University, UNC-Wilmington, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburgh, Ohio State University, and University of Texas; we thank them all for their valuable input.

This project was made possible with a grant from the International Research and Studies Program in the U.S. Department of Education.
