The Minnesota Evaluation Studies Institute (MESI) is an interdisciplinary training institute for evaluation studies at the University of Minnesota. We provide high-quality theoretical, technical, and practical training to professional evaluators and we are committed to supporting evaluation that values stakeholder participation and collaboration. MESI is part of the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) in the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). We are unique in bringing together faculty expertise from the college, the School of Public Health, the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs, and Minnesota Extension.
