Course Description and Learning Objectives

Outcomes and Evaluations is one of nine courses in the UNA Credential Program designed to provide you with the resources you need to make an even greater impact. Measuring the performance of your organization is essential to understand and communicate your actual impact, inform decision making and guide organization improvement, properly deploy resources, and build a strong case for receiving funders’ support. This course is designed to provide you with tools for deciding how to:

  • Improve your understanding of what more you can do to change lives and strengthen communities,
  • Create higher organizational standards and supports a culture of outcome-focused excellence,
  • Influence organizational culture,
  • Strengthens your case for receiving and retaining support from funders, and
  • Support data-driven decision making to guide organizational improvement and the allocation of resources.

You'll be ready to  

  • Clarify your intended impact and how it will achieve results,
  • Identify appropriate metrics for activities, outputs, and outcomes for your nonprofit, 
  • Establish an evaluation plan for the continued improvement of measurements, and
  • Develop and deploy data collection, analysis, and reporting tools to monitor impacts and communicate results.

We waited until now to remind you: garbage in, garbage out ... and don't you agree that there's too much garbage in the world already?
