Project Goals

CREOS generates data about interventions based on credible research evidence, rather than on assumptions, habits, anecdotes, and untested hypotheses. The programs conduct and disseminate evidence-based research so the scholarly community can develop high-impact, action driven programs, policies, and processes. It remains a long-term goal of CREOS to contribute to the development of scholars with the skills, knowledge, and desire to advance research in these areas, leading to the development of a robust new field of study in open and equitable scholarship.
