Student Development


Graduate students are essential to the work of the LPRC, and LPRC faculty work hard to provide meaningful experiences for graduate student development. Graduate students in the LPRC gain real-world experience with presenting at academic conferences, writing for publication, and interacting with clients and stakeholders. Throughout this process, students develop methodological expertise that will equip them to address today’s challenges in education.

What do alumni have to say about their experiences in the LPRC?

Finding a job was easy thanks to the real-world evaluation experience I gained at the LPRC.
