About ImpactED

Our Work

Fels ImpactED accelerates social change by building data-informed organizations. ImpactED grew out of the work of Operation Public Education, which historically focused on K-12 education policy. In recent years, the work expanded in scope to include other spheres of the public and social sectors and moved to the Fels’ Institute of Government.

We have a proven track record in program evaluation and organizational development. We bridge the worlds of research and practice by applying rigorous methods to meet real-world organizational needs.

check Evaluation Services. We conduct rigorous and responsive evaluation studies. Our evaluations provide a trusted validation of organizations’ work and provide insights to increase organizational effectiveness.

check Development Services. We offer targeted development for organizational leaders.  Our trainings equip organizations with the information, skills, and tools they need to build performance measurement and program evaluation capacity.

Our Values

Because we believe data is only useful if it can inform decisions in an ongoing, timely way, we integrate our evaluations with strategy and communications efforts and approach all of our evaluation projects with a commitment to empathy, excellence, and continuous improvement.
