The interactive panel session on higher education assessment will feature Melanie Booth, Marylhurst University; Tanya Ostrogorsky, Oregon Health Sciences University; Vicki Wise and Rowanna Carpenter, Portland State University; and Linda Reisser, Portland Community College.

Founded in 1997, the Oregon Program Evaluators Network is an organization for professionals who are involved with or interested in program evaluation. OPEN allows for the exchange of ideas and information to promote and encourage high-quality evaluation practices. The members of OPEN represent a wide variety of government agencies, non-profits, universities and private consulting firms.
