Core Values

Mission, Vision, and Core Values

Our Board of Directors, staff, consultants, and volunteers are committed and devoted to a common goal: student success and equity in our California Community Colleges. In addition to our shared vision and goal, four core values guide our work and culture...

Our Mission

Through professional and leadership development, technical assistance, research, and evaluation services, the RP Group strengthens the ability of California Community Colleges to discover and undertake high-quality research, planning, and assessments that improve evidence-based decision making, institutional effectiveness, and success for all students.

Our Vision

The RP Group strives to build a community college culture that views planning, evidence-based decision-making, and institutional effectiveness as integral, collaborative strategies that work together to promote student success, increase equitable outcomes, improve college operations, and inform policymakers.

Our Core Values

Our projects, products, and initiatives are carefully researched, thoroughly vetted, and broadly informed.

Our board, staff, consultants, volunteers, and members have direct experience with community colleges and share a deep passion for ensuring the success of our students and institutions.

We are motivated to equip our community colleges to significantly improve achievement among students historically underserved by our institutions and to provide a path to mobility for those most vulnerable in our society.

Our engaging, action-oriented, and practitioner-based approach draws on the collective wisdom of our system and empowers our stakeholders and clients to lead their own meaningful inquiry and evidence-based decision-making.
