Discover Our Expertise



RISE is qualified to meet your small- or large-scale research needs. We have experience designing quasi-experimental studies with government accountability standards, and we are ready to collaborate on funding proposals. We hold the necessary certificates for conducting human subject research, and we have experience guiding projects through the IRB approval process. Our prior research projects have been disseminated through national and international conference presentations and through peer-reviewed publications.



We conduct evaluation for organizations working in the arts & culture sector. We have worked with school-based and out-of-school time programs, state and local arts agencies, and universities to evaluate and communicate their impact. Our evaluation summaries can be used to remain accountable to stakeholders in your community. We also offer evaluation and assessment of equity, diversity, accessibility, inclusion and belonging (EDAIB) efforts at the systemic and policy levels. Our EDAIB work includes power analyses of organizational policy, practice and programs, and we offer a comprehensive EDAIB organizational assessment tool for arts & culture nonprofits.
