Center on Network Science

The Center on Network Science is an active hub of network research, evaluation and education and is dedicated to serving as a resource for communities, organizations, faculty, staff and students. Our goal is to build knowledge, skills and tools for network leaders and managers to be able to use data to understand their networks, inform decisions, improve collaborations, and ultimately, promote change. Our evaluation work responds to the needs of our partners through a Community-Based Participatory Research approach, with a few recent projects described below. With community partners, we co-sponsor the annual Network Leadership Training Academy and a free monthly webinar series, both with an outstanding lineup of presenters drawn from our local communities and around the country.
