As part of a $650,000 grant from the largest educational foundation in the state, the Helios Education Foundation, we are the subject of a two-year independent program evaluation being performed by the educational department at the University of Florida (UF).
The first element of the three-part study is now complete, and we will host a breakfast to share the findings on March 31 from 7:30-9 a.m. at The Tap Room Restaurant at Dubsdread.
The report will be presented by Dr. Justin C. Ortagus, an Associate Professor of Higher Education Administration & Policy and Director of the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Florida.
