When it rains, it pours!
This year, the Noyce Program (STEM Teacher Preparation and Leadership Scholarship program) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) is celebrating 20 years.

Over 600 people, including over 400 PIs, Co-PIs, Noyce Scholars, Evaluators, and staff members will be attending the 2.5 days of the Annual Noyce Summit in Washington DC on July 18-20.
MNA will be proudly representing eight (8) active Noyce grants that we are evaluating in: Capacity Building, Tracks 1 and 4 for these institutions and organization:
1. Alcorn State University, MS
2. Austin College, TX
3. Bowie State University, MD
4. George Mason University, VA
5. Jackson State University, MS
6. University of Houston, Clear Lake, TX
7. University of North Texas, TX and
8. EDC, MA.
On July 19, between 3.45-4.30pm, along with my colleague, Nina de las Alas and Meltem Alemdar, Ph.D., we will be engaging and assisting Noyce PIs (both new and veteran) to deepen their common understanding of evaluation and show them ways to leverage evaluation data to document gaps/needs, highlight good practices, measure impact and program efficacy, and build sustainability of their projects. We will also talk about the evaluation requirements of each Noyce track while sharing some common obstacles and strategies from the field.
Hope we have a good attendance at the session. The good part is that it’s neither right before or after lunch so folks will (likely) not be too hungry or tired and we promise to make it interactive.
Looking forward to meeting several of our current and even prospective clients and (re-)connecting with them in-person this time!
