RP Group Listservs

Stay connected with professionals in your field through an RP Group listserv.

Our listservs are robust resources that facilitate knowledge-sharing among California Community College leaders; researchers and planners; and student learning outcome and assessment practitioners — on issues, methodologies, tools, effective practices, relevant studies, and other useful resources to aid in student and college success.

We have several active listservs with members from a variety of areas in the California Community College system and even subscribers from outside of California, focused on various topics such as institutional research and planning, outcomes assessment, and more.

These listservs are not for commercial or private use. Both normal "netiquette" and academic freedom of expression are expected of users to maximize their utility. Please follow these simple guidelines in using the listservs:

  • All postings and responses should be signed with the subscriber's name, job title, organization name, and email address.
  • Attachments should not be sent to members of the listserv, because large documents will not go through. Please request that listserv members contact you directly for attachments you wish to share.
  • Personal messages should be emailed directly to the individual, not to the list.
  • This listserv is not intended for advertising, product-related press releases, or other commercial use.
  • Members may occasionally use the listserv for announcements of non-commercial conferences, publications, and other non-commercial resources of general interest.
  • Product endorsements are acceptable in the context of a request for information or sharing of an experience. Responses from a representative of a corporate member should be in the context of a reasonable answer to a question posed by a subscriber and should not be blatantly commercial. Such postings should include the identifying signature of the person posting the message.
  • The opinions expressed in listserv discussions are those of individual subscribers and not necessarily those of their institutions. The RP Group is not responsible for the opinions expressed on any list.
  • We encourage listserv members to utilize the RP Group’s Job Posting (add link) section of the website to share career opportunities. Please do not post jobs through the listservs.
