The Council has been named a strategic learning and evaluation partner for the Atlantic Fellows, a network of fellowship programs funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies aimed at empowering a new generation of leaders and change-makers to advance fairer, healthier, more inclusive, and more equitable societies around the world. Fellows collaborate across disciplines and borders to understand and address the root causes of pressing global problems. The Atlantic Philanthropies understands that a system of strategic learning and assessment designed to guide and support the institutions selected to host its fellowships is essential to ensuring its investments contribute to a learning legacy and make substantial and sustainable impacts. The SSRC is serving as the primary learning and assessment partner for four of the seven fellowships the Atlantic Philanthropies is supporting, providing each fellowship with developmental support, ongoing formative evaluations aimed at improving the structure and organization of the fellowship host institutions, and a long-term strategic learning and assessment plan.
