Jenny LeBeau conducts program and project evaluation through the Learning and Performance Research Center and teaches in the Department of Educational Leadership, Sport Science, and Educational/Counseling Psychology.
Dr. LeBeau’s primary interests lie in evaluation of projects related to STEM education and to student success. She has conducted research on service learning and student-faculty interactions as they relate to undergraduate and adult student success. Dr. LeBeau’s current research focuses on pedagogical practices to enhance adult learning and ways in which program evaluation can be taught effectively to graduate students.
