National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research

The National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research (NISER) provides quality evaluation services to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research and education sectors, including academic communities, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities.

NISER was founded in 2016 under the leadership of Pamela Bishop and is part of the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), housed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. As of the last annual reporting period, NISER had collaborated on more than 60 grant proposals, of which 15 had been awarded totaling $1.5 million.

Evaluations have been an integral part of all NIMBioS activities since the institute was established in 2008. Evaluation findings help inform NIMBioS program content and format as well as overall operations.

NISER's staff has experience in systems-level evaluation, a deep understanding of interdisciplinary team science, a professional collaborative approach to program evaluation and research, and the ability to untangle the complexity of large-scale STEM programs. NISER offers a range of data-driven services to best serve its clients' needs.
