The Research, Evaluation, and Measurement Center (REM Center), formerly the Office
of Program Evaluation, is an independent unit of the University of South Carolina’s
College of Education. We offer a wide range of education-related evaluation, assessment,
and research services to public and private agencies, including educational institutions,
government agencies, museums and other organizations. Our faculty and staff work with
teams of research assistants and affiliated University faculty to plan, develop, and
carry out program evaluation, assessment, and research projects.
The REM Center's mission is to improve education policy and practice in the U.S.,
southeast region, and South Carolina.To accomplish this, we:
Provide high-quality services in evaluation, research, measurement, and professional
development to support a broad range of educational agencies and organizations.
Develop partnerships with the education community to build evaluation capacity and
improve decision making through systematic inquiry.
Initiate research on educational policy and practice.
Develop the capacity of future evaluators, researchers, measurement experts, and educational
administrators through extensive, practice-based graduate assistantships under the
supervision of expert faculty members.
If you are developing a grant proposal, we are happy to help, especially regarding
the evaluation and research design aspects. If you have received funding and need
