Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Formerly known as the Program Evaluation as Organizational Development Certificate (PEOD).

You’ve created a program plan. You’ve executed your strategy. Your programs are running – but are they effective? How do you know if they meet the needs that you designed them for? How do you prove to your board or funding stream that your program is worth continuing?

With limited resources a common theme in many workplaces, the need to evaluate your efforts (and adjust accordingly) has never been greater.

Our certificate is designed for those who need to evaluate, analyze and improve upon programs and/or services within the workplace. The certificate program is offered in partnership with the Centre for Community Research, Learning and Action (CCRLA). CCRLA is a community-engaged research centre located within Laurier's Faculty of Science.

If you are a professional or recent graduate looking to expand your skills in the applied field of program evaluation, this certificate provides an active learning experience designed to help you work in a wide range of industries.
