The Claremont Evaluation Center is pleased to bring you this longstanding series which provides practical and theoretical training in evaluation and applied research through one-day workshops, taught by academics and practitioners from across the globe.

Previous years have consistently brought hundreds of participants to Claremont from across the globe, representing an exciting cross-section of the private and public sectors. In recent years, we have expanded our offerings to provide extensive online participation to make these workshops even more accessible. This year, almost all the workshops will be offered online as well as in-person.

The workshops will take place at Claremont Graduate University in the Ron W. Burkle Family Building. The Burkle Building is located at 1021 N. Dartmouth Avenue, Claremont, CA 91711. Each morning begins with a brief group session in Burkle Room 16, adjacent to the registration booth.
