CERC People

The CERC staff is composed of researchers and evaluators with years of experience working with communities to address their self-identified concerns. We have conducted research and evaluation projects in education, youth development, early childhood, health, and community development. We are experienced in translating research and evaluation findings into concrete recommendations for increasing the quality of services and improving lives.
