In tribute to Lyn Shulha: The authentic evaluator

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With great honour, I offer a modest commentary1 on the articles in this special issue of the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation, complemented by reflections on my decades of interactions with and memories of Lyn. My commentary underscores the enduring legacy of Lyn's significant contributions to the field of evaluation. These contributions largely, though not exclusively, reside in three domains: collaborative approaches to evaluation, the field's deep commitment to evaluation use, and the substance and contributions of meaningful standards for evaluation practice. My reflections honour Lyn's kindness, practical scholarship, integrity, and joyful engagement with the full richness of life.
