Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. Carver County staff had initiated continuous improvement and innovation workshops across a variety of departments. The goal of this project was to create an evaluation plan for the innovation workshops. Carver County project lead Lorraine Brady worked with a team of students in PA 5311: Program Evaluation, to develop an evaluation plan, program logic model, and assessment tools for future events. The student proposal sought to answer two questions: (1) does the Innovation Project lead to cultural transformation? and (2) Does this cultural transformation lead to increased value? The students' final report and presentation are available.
Report and Presentation completed by students enrolled in PA 5311: Program Evaluation, taught by Dr. Jodi Sandfort in spring 2016.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
