The CEGA Research Retreat (R^2) is an annual gathering of invited faculty, staff and students from multiple CEGA campuses with a shared interest in impact evaluation. The purpose of R^2, which features presentations by CEGA-affiliated researchers and their collaborators, is to generate feedback for new and ongoing research, and to stimulate productive discussions among participants.
Held in October 2013, the fifth annual R^2 featured presentations by five CEGA faculty and one visiting scholar, and many engaging interactions among over 60 participants.
