|Description:||This 6-month project is funded by and conducted for the Center for Identity at the University of Texas at Austin. The Ray Marshall Center (RMC), which is part of the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin, is conducting the evaluation led by Kelly Mikelson, Ph.D., Principal Investigator and Research Scientist, and Christopher T. King, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist at RMC. Overall Objectives:
RMC researchers will be conducting in-depth in-person and telephone interviews with the Center for Identity’s key partners, employer representatives, and government agencies in Austin, Washington, DC, and four other cities nationwide. Researchers will be gathering information about education and training needs for identity management, security, and privacy. The information will be used to hone and further develop the Center’s MSIMS degree program and will culminate in a Final Report and recommendations in mid-April 2015.
