Awardees were publicly honored as part of the annual RP Conference, held April 12 through April 14 in Garden Grove, Calif.

Each year, the group bestows two different awards to recognize exceptional contributions by individuals and teams for the benefit of California Community Colleges students and institutions.

"In order to truly move the needle in the realm of student success, we must shine a light on those people, institutions, and projects that have created significant change on various levels," the RP Group stated.

The RP Group is a membership-based organization representing institutional research, planning, and effectiveness (IRPE) professionals in the CCC. From 2013 to 2018, the RP Group served as grant evaluator for three major CCC Technology Center programs, the Common Assessment Initiative, the Education Planning Initiative, and the Online Education Initiative.

Institutional researchers, in general, are an important stakeholder for Tech Center programs, as their work helps to inform district-level decision-making regarding the impact of our products on local student success efforts. These individuals also form a key user group of the Tech Center’s CCC Data platform.

Below are this year’s RP Group award winners.
