Regional Research Groups

Regional Research Groups Overview

Regional Research Groups offer in-person meetings throughout the state, focused on the latest institutional research and planning issues and developments taking place in California and beyond. These gatherings foster knowledge sharing and best practice exchanges and offer an environment for networking and relationship building in your region.

Join your fellow community college researchers and planners and stay current on important and timely issues!


Regional Research Group Roots

These groups stem from the Los Angeles area's CAMP Research Group, established in 2001 and named after its founding members — College of the Canyons, Antelope Valley College, Mt. San Antonio College, Pasadena City College, and Rio Hondo College. As the success of CAMP spread, our board members liked the idea and began organizing additional regional groups across the state.
