Carolyn D. Sullins is a Senior Research Associate at The Evaluation Center at Western Michigan University. She is directing the evaluations of an after school program, a behavior management program, and a parent information resource center. She was the project manager for the Cleveland Community Schools evaluation and has contributed to evaluations of charter schools in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. In addition, she was the project director for the evaluation of a university alcohol risk-reduction project. Recently she has taught several graduate-level courses in program evaluation, including co-teaching with Dr. Daniel Stufflebeam an advanced seminar in evaluation models.
Dr. Sullins earned her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology in 2000, specializing in quantitative and evaluative research methods, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she also completed her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology in 1996. Her master’s thesis, portions of which are published in Psychology of Women Quarterly, involved designing, administering, and analyzing a survey of therapists’ practices. Her doctoral dissertation concerned an empowerment evaluation of a consumer-run mental health drop-in center. It involved mental health consumers in the design, implementation, interpretation, and use of an evaluation of their own center. This project, which generated five national presentations and an article in American Journal of Evaluation, led to new conceptualizations of particular evaluation models and applications.
