CIRES We Are Water

This collaborative research project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF-DRL #1907024) created a traveling exhibit and complementary programming around critical water topics and is touring libraries across the Four Corners region that serve primarily rural, Latin(x) and Indigenous communities. Jill is leading a process evaluation and summative evaluation, in collaboration with Native Pathways, to support collaboration across diverse partners, help develop and document key measures of success, and support understanding around culturally responsive research and community engagement.

Jill is leading a process evaluation in support of a yearlong planning grant led by the University of Montana, designed to develop a cross-jurisdiction alliance of six EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) state partners. The CIRCLES Alliance (Cultivating Indigenous Research Communities for Leadership in Education and STEM) is focused on building better pathways to engage Native American students in STEM fields and careers. The evaluation team has focused on understanding the extent to which partners’ perceptions of project goals align, the extent to which partners feel included and heard, and what supports are needed to create growth and sustainability of the alliance’s efforts.

Since we design each project to suit your specific needs and context, we recommend that you contact us for a free 60-minute consultation to discuss your research or evaluation needs and how we might best work together.
