National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities (NLCDD) – Undergraduate Research Assistant
An Undergraduate Research Assistant is needed to work with the National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities (NLCDD) on a project evaluating the effectiveness of person-centered training. NLCDD is currently conducting a longitudinal investigation into the impact of person-centered training and technical assistance on person-centered thinking, planning, and practices. The project aims to:
- Better understand outcomes related to the process of person centered training, technical assistance, transformation and resulting quality
- Better understand the factors that support and hinder that process
- Inform additional information needed to more fully understand the process
- Develop an evaluation model useful to organizations invested in transformation to person centered supports to track progress and outcomes.
The Undergraduate Research Assistant involved in this project will work directly with the Graduate Research Assistant and the Director of Research and Evaluation to clean and organize incoming data, create and maintain databases, and other assistance as needed. Prospective Undergraduate Research Assistants will be trained by the Graduate Research Assistant and no prior experience is needed. However, attention to detail, strong communication skills (prompt replies to emails), and personal time management skills are needed for the position. Most of the work can be completed off campus, with occasional team meetings on campus at the NLCDD office in Alison Hall.
