SERVE Center is a university-based, non-profit center dedicated to the most efficient and effective use of data, research, and evaluation at all levels of the education. When SERVE began, the challenges that schools faced were lack of data and access to research. Today, the challenges for leaders often lie in too much information and too little time to make sense of the vast amount of data, research, and evaluation. Thus, we commit to helping educational leaders make sense of the complicated array of data, research, and evaluation available in light of their particular issues, organizational challenges, or specific needs and time frames. We work closely with our clients to understand their organizational context, then design tailored services that result in timely, relevant, and responsive information to inform strategies, policies, programs, and practices.
