FSMEI in partnership with its affiliates has designed program specific evaluation frameworks that are culturally relevant based on decolonized methodologies. We believe that the process of program evaluation can not be removed from the larger social and racial realities that exist in the broader educational and cultural institutions. As such FSMEI in partnership with community and stakeholders creates a unique and responsive solution for measuring value and measuring impact without compromising on our mission.
