CEC Leadership

Dr Keith Norris at Annual Conference

The overall purpose of the Coordination and Evaluation Center (CEC) at UCLA is to provide the Diversity Program Consortium's grantees with coordination and operational support, conduct data coordination/collection and program evaluation, and disseminate best practices.

The CEC is comprised of four cores, the Administrative Core (AC), the Data Coordination Core (DCC), the Evaluation Core (EC) and a Communication and Dissemination Core (CDC) in recognition of the expanded growth of the DPC and the critical importance of both internal DPC communications and disseminating best practices. Each of the Center's cores are guided by a Director and Co-Lead. An External Advisory Board (EAB) provides guidance and recommendations to the CEC.
