Welcome from the Project Director
Hello, and welcome to STEPs!
We are eager to partner with you to “tell the story” of what you do. Whether it’s for purposes of improving your program, assessing need, or meeting funding requirements, we’re here for you.
Our collaborative, utilization-focused approach will help us to understand who you are and what you aim to do. From asking good questions to collecting valid data and effectively reporting results, we can help you move closer toward evidence-informed decision making.
Engaging with a university-based program evaluator offers many advantages. The positive, community-engaged reputation of UNO is solidly respected in the community and by funders. We bring a social work flavor to our work which offers knowledge, skill, and experience in many practice areas, with an emphasis on making life better for all.
Our staff come from many backgrounds, and we can reach out to faculty from any of the programs across campus to provide expert consultation. With one or more graduate students assigned to every project, supervised closely by professional staff, you get quality services at a reasonable cost.
We’re pleased to be housed in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center where, in the words of one of our partners, “Good things happen!” While we’re happy to meet in your space, we’re also pleased to invite you to the UNO campus where we can offer you easy parking, great meeting spaces, and a collaborative spirit.
Give me a call, and let’s discover how we can help you take the next step towards programs and policies that transform and improve lives.
