My graduate training is in the field of Community Psychology with emphasis on program development and evaluation. For close to 20 years, since I began my doctoral studies in 1999, I have been involved with evaluating the Meyerhoff Scholars Program as a graduate research assistant-- until I became a coordinator in 2005 of a multi-disciplinary effort to analyze the impact of the program. Currently, I coordinate the multi-institutional assessment and evaluation project for the Meyerhoff Adaptation initiative (now on its 6th year) which launched scholars programs-- following the Meyerhoff model-- at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and at Penn State University.
