Research & Evaluation

HDI projects include opportunities for research and evaluation. We also promote research and evaluation as an overall priority of the Institute. Our Evaluation Unit provides expertise in delivering comprehensive evaluation and consultation services within the domains of disability, education, health and workforce development. We offer competitive funding for research led by HDI staff and faculty through our Fund for Excellence. Many of our research and evaluation efforts are in partnership with other universities and community partners. For more information, contact: Phillip Rumrill PhD, CRC.
