Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment

About Conferences Partners People Media


The recent COVID-19 outbreak has been especially challenging for the populations and communities most directly served by our CREA community. As an international community of scholars and practitioners, we recognize that the pandemic has affected many of our underserved and underrepresented communities in devasting and debilitating ways.   As a CREA community, while we seek to produce various forms of scholarship and opportunities, we offer these resources in ways that might advance our cultural response evaluation and assessment to our communities.


This webpage resource is designed to facilitate deeper understandings of the work we do in our multiple international and indigenous communities affected by COVID-19.   Through a webpage search between (3/13/20 and 5/31/20) of internet news and social media, we identified and received COVID-19 sources related to our communities. An additional set of links focuses on data charts and representations of COVID-19 in the communities most served by our scholars and practitioners.
