Dr. Al Solano

Dr. Al Solano is a longtime partner and collaborator to The RP Group, and founder and coach at the Continuous Learning Institute. A big believer in kindness, he helps higher education institutions plan and implement homegrown practices to improve student success and equity by coaching them through a process based on what he calls the "three Cs”: clarity, coherence, and consensus. In addition, Al’s bite-sized, practitioner-based articles on student success strategies, institutional planning and implementation, and educational leadership are implemented at institutions nationwide. He has worked directly with over 50 colleges and universities and trained over 5,000 educators. He has coached colleges for over a decade, worked at two community colleges, and began his education career in K–12.

Al earned a doctorate in education from the University of California, Los Angeles, and is a proud community college student who transferred to Cornell University, where he earned his bachelor’s in government and history.
