More about CREA

The Center on Research, Evaluation & Analysis (CREA) consists of a team of evaluators with broad experience and expertise in program and personnel evaluation and research. CREA has a long and solid history of providing quality evaluation and research for rural and urban and public and private agencies across Oregon, the Northwest, and nationally.

Since its inception, CREA has contracted with clients across a broad geographic and professional spectrum providing rigorous, client responsive evaluations and needs assessments generating information and evidence on which to make decisions. Key to this is intensive work with clients to clarify, focus, and finalize what it is they want to know and/or be able to do with findings.
