PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND INTRODUCTION
For the joint evaluation of the CAREERS Workforce cohort at Jefferson College and Ohlone College, an external evaluator will be engaged to provide guidance for project investigators on effective consortium practices. The external evaluator will also be required to provide guidance and evaluate the consortium’s high school and college partnerships, provide guidance and evaluate branding and marketing for the Ohlone College Biotechnology Program and provide guidance and evaluate progress on industry partnerships.
This process will commence with a virtual evaluation workshop to present guidance for investigators and faculty on both Jefferson College and Ohlone College campuses. The Year 1 workshop will cover an overview of the evaluation design, methods, and data analysis plan. A midterm Year 2 progress report for the project would include summary joint data collected by the individual institutions. The final Year 3 evaluation report would provide feedback on consortium collaboration effectiveness that would be used to inform future partnerships. Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri and Ohlone College in Fremont, California comprise the Colleges Aligning Resources to Elevate Education and Regional STEM (CAREERS) Workforce consortium that is funded for 3 years by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Enabling Partnerships to Increase Innovation Capacity (EPIIC) grant.
