RP Conference Proposal Relevance and Conference Theme

The RP Conference 2022 theme is The Evolving Role of IRPE: Supporting Equitable Learning Across the Institution. Across California Community Colleges, institutional research, planning, and effectiveness (IRPE) professionals are awash in data. They navigate and guide their institutions in using public data sets, build needed dashboards, query data from local warehouse repositories, and provide expertise in strategic thinking, planning, and partnerships. IRPE professionals have become cornerstones of their institutions, leveraging data that inspires informed decision-making and positive, student-centered change. The theme of RP Conference 2022 focuses on how the evolving role of IRPE professionals enables equitable inquiry and collaborative learning to create organizational and systems change. In April 2022, IRPE professionals will come together in Orange County to share effective strategies and innovations and chart a future for the field that will impact student-centered teaching and learning.

With this in mind, we invite you to submit a proposal about work that highlights equitable learning across the institution. This could be a discussion or utilization of a topic, tool, or resource that is relevant to the research, planning, and institutional effectiveness community of practitioners.
