Eleanor M. Jaffee held multiple faculty and staff positions at the Carsey School from 2010 to 2019. She served as director of the Carsey School Evaluation Program, a Carsey research assistant professor, and the project manager of the Coös Youth Study, a ten-year study of young people in New Hampshire’s rural north country as they transitioned from adolescence to adulthood in the context of regional demographic and economic changes. She is now the founder, owner, and principal of Insights Evaluation LLC, an evaluation and applied research consulting company based in Manchester, New Hampshire. Although she finds many valuable uses for her research and evaluation “toolbox,” Eleanor’s primary work is external evaluation of federally and privately funded non-profit programs. She has a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Binghamton University, and a master’s degree in Social Work macro practice and a PhD in Social Welfare from the State University of New York at Albany.
