SYNOPSIS: In collaboration, universities and private sector organizations have the potential to realize wide-ranging social and environmental goals. This forum aims to bring together NGOs and their University partners to discuss their strategies for managing and implementing cross-sector collaborations. The event is ideal for NGO representatives, university faculty, and doctoral students who want to build cross-sector partnerships. In addition to four short talks, the event will feature an impact evaluation workshop in which NGO representatives will be paired with doctoral students to lay the groundwork for rigorous impact evaluation studies.

NOTE: NGO representatives will send a one-page description of the programs they would like to evaluate in advance of the event. PhD students will review these documents and generate suggested research designs to discuss.
