TEI, the first entity of its kind in the world, was founded by Dr. M. F. “Midge” Smith in 1996. Dr. Smith’s vision was to bring together the most highly regarded experts in the field to identify the most useful evaluation content areas, who would then provide instruction and learning activities that enhance the role of, the practice of, and the impact of evaluation. TEI continues Dr. Smith’s vision in its new home in the Claremont Evaluation Center at Claremont Graduate University.
