Our Mission

Our mission is to support evaluators who utilize and want to learn more about qualitative methods in their practice. 

Who we are

Our members work in a variety of evaluation contexts and substantive areas and utilize qualitative methods in their practice. 

What we value

Acquiring the necessary techniques and skills for applying qualitative methods is essential. In addition, we believe it is critical for evaluators to understand qualitative theories, epistemologies, and multiple ways of knowing and being.  We promote quality qualitative methods in evaluation practice, and innovation of qualitative methods. 

What we do

To support our mission, we 1) organize conference sessions on qualitative methods and theories, 2) provide opportunities to discuss and learn qualitative theory and practice, and 3) maintain a website with relevant resources for members.
