We work toward our vision of creating communities where all children and families thrive by conducting collaborative research that increases our understanding of programs and practices that advance social justice.
Evaluating how programs work in different settings supports continuous quality improvement and adaptations to meet community needs.
We engage community partners to work collaboratively on the following research activities:
- Research development and design
- Stakeholder engagement
- Focus groups and interviews
- Survey development and administration
- Qualitative and quantitative data management and analysis
- Results synthesis and dissemination (e.g., full reports and briefs, presentations, one pagers, infographics, video)
Interested in evaluating your program, service, or community initiative? Please contact TXICFW Director Dr. Monica Faulkner.
