2018 RP Conference: Integration for Transformation

April 11-12, 2018 | The Westin Long Beach   

This annual conference is the largest gathering of institutional researchers and planners in the California Community College system. 

Each year, the RP Conference convenes institutional researchers and planners in community colleges across California to exchange local approaches to common issues, learn about the latest developments in the field, and strengthen relationships within our community. It is a hands-on conference of your peers and by your peers, expanding your research and planning toolkit to help you support your institution's capacity for evidence-based decision-making and inquiry. 

Conference Features

  • Presentation of 2018 RP Awards recognizing excellence and outstanding achievements in research, planning, and institutional effectiveness

  • Important updates by the RP Group and the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office

  • Numerous opportunities to grow your professional network and connect with colleagues, old and new
