Center for Human Services Research,Education Team receives 2014 President’s Award for Exemplary Community Engagement.

Led by three research scientists in the School of Social Welfare, the Center for Human Services Research's Education Team has been integral to the City School District of Albany's efforts to improve student achievement through the use of data-based decision making and evaluation of best practices. CHSR has helped the District secure, implement, and evaluate nearly $20 million in grant projects designed to assist the neediest children and turn around struggling schools. The Center's longitudinal tracking and reporting has helped CSDA monitor trends, assess program impacts, and make better-informed decisions. CHSR also serves as the data support and evaluation team for the Albany Promise Cradle-to-Career Partnership. The award will be presented to CHSR on April 25th in University Hall.
