Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. Brooklyn Park is in the midst of a large rebranding initiative, but is unsure how residents and other stakeholders feel about the initiative. To assess the opinions of these groups, students in Dr. Jodi Sandfort’s Program Evaluation course helped the city increase communication with residents and departments by outlining processes to gain constructive feedback. The students specifically outlined how to conduct focus groups and distribute effective surveys. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
Report, poster, and presentation, completed by students enrolled in PA 5311: Program Evaluation, taught by Jodi Sanfort in spring 2017.
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. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
