December 2015  

Welcome to the first issue of our newest publication, the RP Super Brief--it's brief, it's super, it's super brief! This monthly e-mail will provide you with a quick glimpse into RP Group news, events, and opportunities for the coming weeks.

 

Additionally, we are pleased to announce that the Perspectives e-newsletter will now be published six times per year, on the 15th day of alternating months. The next issue will be published on December 15, 2015. This change to the Perspectives publication timeline will give our new editorial team and contributing authors adequate time to produce quality content for each issue of Perspectives. The e-newsletter will continue to provide you with news and insights focused on CCC research, evaluation, planning, leadership, and assessment efforts that strengthen student success.

 

Both the RP Super Brief and the revised Perspectives schedule are part of a comprehensive redesign process that the RP Group is undertaking to make its communications with our members more timely and valuable.

 

Happy December!
