What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
"The Tennessee Higher Education Commission has used CoBro Consulting’s data management services since 2008 for the state GEAR UP grant, the College Access Challenge Grant, and the Lumina Foundation Latino Student Success grant. Since 2012, CoBro has also served as the external evaluator for Tennessee’s GEAR UP grant. We have been extremely satisfied with CoBro’s technical abilities and professionalism. CoBro staff are very reliable in completing projects and have a high level of expertise in evaluation design, data analysis and annual reporting. They present findings in a way that is easily digestible and clearly articulated, and they are a pleasure to work with."

Tennessee Higher Education Commission
“I love the fact that all of the CoBro Consulting staff are approachable and reachable when I need them, whether it’s at a conference, by email, or phone, the staff is always willing to set time aside to answer questions and explain options to me and to my school site staff. In addition, as we have turn over, new staff can get training online immediately when they need it, and in a way that works for them. CoBro always has staff available for questions and training when needed."
Amy Kernin-Laye, GEAR UP Idaho State Program Director
Idaho State Department of Education
"CoBro Consulting has been one of our most important partners with our GEAR UP grants. For over seven years, we have relied on CoBro’s Compass system for our data collection and reporting. We always aim to go beyond the APR with our program assessment and data-driven decision making strategies, so we always count on CoBro to optimize our data systems and evaluation processes. New grantees would be wise to begin their proposals and grants with CoBro Consulting; continuing grantees should explore what CoBro can do for you!"
