Evidence Generation is the online home of the Graduate Research Fellowship Program in the Research and Evaluation (R&E) Center at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Graduate Research Fellows work with affiliated agencies in New York City to identify, confront, and resolve the challenges facing organizations as they build the data resources necessary to generate compelling evidence of their own effectiveness.
Research Fellows occasionally assist agencies with evaluation tasks, but their mission is not to conduct research. It is to prepare and empower agencies to generate better evidence. Organizations are not charged for their affiliation with Evidence Generation. The initiative is supported by grants which cover the costs of the Graduate Research Fellows and all staff and faculty from John Jay College who are involved in the initiative.
Graduate Research Fellowships are funded by the Pinkerton Foundation of New York, through the Pinkerton Fellowship Initiative at John Jay College, along with generous support from Mr. Jack Rudin and the Rudin family foundations of New York City.
The R&E Center is a member of the Research Consortium of John Jay College.
