See Clearly, Change Insightfully

What We Do

Led by Dr. Lucas Hill and Dr. Evangeline Su, the SEER Institute helps teams, change projects, institutions, and organizations advance their short- and long-term change goals.

To do this, we apply the SEER Process, which consists of four interlocking parts that help organizational change leaders and project teams better See their project within larger system dynamics, Enact informed and collaborative actions, Evaluate the success of interventions, and regularly Revisit goals, actions, and evaluation strategies.

SEER Process

Our work is rooted in the SEER Framework, which consists of four interlocking components that help organizational change leaders and project teams better See their project within larger system dynamics, Enact informed and collaborative actions, Evaluate the success of interventions, and Revisit goals, actions, and evaluation strategies.

The SEER Process is guided by the Inclusive Professional Framework (IPF) developed by the National Change Initiative of the NSF Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Aspire Alliance. The IPF centers the journey of building an equity mindset through the examination of identity and intercultural awareness and humility, and emphasizes cultivating trust and clear and transparent communication for the relational domains across campus roles and responsibilities. The IPF can provide a common language for change teams to begin to frame desired change.

SEER process diagram. A path going between the four principles of the process: to "see" is depicted with magnifying glass, to "enact" is depicted with a meeting graphic, to "evaluate" is depicted with a checklist, and "to revisit" is depicted with 2 arrows forming a circle

The four principles of the SEER Process are shown in a diagram that is like a journey and can be repeated. First, see your change goals within larger system and identify strategic actions. Next, enact on an informed and collaborative change strategy. Then, evaluate the success of your change strategy using systems lens. Lastly, revisit and revise change goals and strategies as incremental change occurs.
