Hi! I'm Samantha Ford. 

I haven’t been in the field long, but I believe in the power of program evaluation. In 2019, I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a B.A. in both Nonprofit Management and Writing and Rhetoric. I met Dr. Concha about two years ago when I was still an undergraduate student, in her program evaluation course at the University of Central Florida, and have been working with her ever since. During that time, I’ve been inspired by the ability of program evaluation to engage communities and empower people to find success and enact real social change.

Hi! I am

Maritza Concha 

For the past 15 years, I have been working as an evaluator for local non-profits, serving Latino/a immigrants.  I am also a lecturer at University of Central Florida where I  teach graduate and undergraduate courses in program evaluation and research methods. I believe that teaching  program evaluation can always be a fun experience, but most importantly, a rewarding experience for the creation of a new generation of agents for social change.
