The Summer Institute brings together university students and community-based practitioners to learn together about evaluation.


The Summer Institute combines lectures, case studies and group work to introduce the concepts of participatory evaluation for improved planning and delivery.

Who Should Attend

  • Those responsible for program delivery, monitoring or evaluation, particularly at the community level

  • Students (graduate/undergraduate) who want to improve their community-based evaluation skills

  • Those seeking networking opportunities with people working in the areas of health, social services, well-being and evaluation

  • People interested in making programs better reflect the needs of their community

Propose an Evaluation Case Study!

Do you have a program you would like to evaluate?

If accepted as a case study, Summer Institute participants will develop and provide you with an evaluation framework for your program, and follow up support for implementation. Submit your case study using the link above.

“I really liked the case study process. The experience provided me with a concrete understanding of the evaluation process.”
