a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   Kristin Seefeldt

The School of Social Work at the University of Michigan will work with Abt Associates to conduct longitudinal, qualitative interviews with a sample of participants who are part of the evaluation of ?Innovative Strategies for Increasing Self-Sufficiency (ISIS).? Kristin S. Seefeldt, Assistant Professor, will serve as the Principal Investigator at the University of Michigan and will perform a number of tasks related to this project. The ISIS evaluation is testing a variety of training strategies designed to move less educated workers onto career pathways.
