The National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research (NISER), formerly part of the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), a National Science Foundation-supported center, is now under the direction of the Office of Research and Engagement. NISER will be part of a larger initiative at ORE: the Evaluation Office for Learning and Visioning Excellence (eVOLve).
New UT-Based National Institute Explores Evaluation Science
A new national institute has been established at UT to provide independent evaluations of research and education programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.
The National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research (NISER) will provide evaluation services to academia, government, and the nonprofit sector and will also generate new knowledge about the ways in which integrated STEM programs function successfully.
