The Claremont Evaluation Center (CEC) is an organized research and evaluation unit of Claremont Graduate University. It is co-directed by Dr. Stewart Donaldson and Dr. Michael Scriven and is supported by faculty from the School of Social Science, Policy, & Evaluation (SSSPE), each of whom directs a Lab at the CEC with specific evaluation focus. Faculty Labs draw from the talented pool of graduate students in SSSPE to provide applied research and evaluation services and technical support to projects and clients with social impact potential. The EDEVAL Lab at the CEC serves to advance Education and Development through Evaluation. Other Labs' focus areas include Health and Technology. 

The CEC is the home of a wide range of major applied research and evaluation initiatives. The CEC organizes and delivers the American Evaluation Association’s Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) program, e-Learning Initiatives in consultation with UNICEF and the Rockefeller Foundation, the Claremont Annual Professional Development Workshop series in Evaluation and Applied Research Methods, the Distance Learning Certificate of Advanced Study in Evaluation, and residential M.A. and Ph.D. degree programs specializing in Evaluation and Applied Research Methods. The senior staff have published extensively in the applied research and evaluation literature. They have been Principal Investigators on numerous research and evaluation grants and contracts.
