What is the 2021 IRPE Summer Institute?

The 2021 IRPE Summer Institute spans two weeks and includes four days of live sessions. The institute will be held virtually and will serve as an immersive learning experience for IRPE professionals focused on equity-minded leadership, specifically on advancing racial equity and social justice across our colleges. Within this context, participants will identify, apply, and evaluate essential skills as an IRPE professional.

Who Should Attend the IRPE Summer Institute?

The IRPE Summer Institute is a professional development opportunity designed for IRPE professionals with various levels of experience. All IRPE professionals (including newcomers, seasoned professionals, and those who have attended a previous IRPE Summer Institute) who have an interest in advancing racial equity and social justice at their college or district are invited to participate. The institute will include interactive breakout sessions, panel presentations, hands-on learning experiences, and online modules.

When is the IRPE Summer Institute?

The IRPE Summer Institute 2021 will begin on Tuesday, June 8 and participants will meet synchronously in-person via Zoom from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm each Tuesday and Thursday through June 17 for a total of four in-person sessions. Participants should also anticipate asynchronous coursework in Canvas throughout the two-week session term.

What Can I Expect?

At the IRPE Summer Institute 2021, you can expect to connect with IRPE colleagues from across the state who are committed to advancing racial equity and social justice across California’s community colleges. Participants can expect to engage in IRPE-focused breakout sessions, activities, discussions, and projects with colleagues within the context of racial equity and social justice. Our goal is for you to walk away from the IRPE Summer Institute 2021 with tools, resources, and strategies that will advance your racial equity and social justice work at your institution. As a participant, you will expand your professional network of support and will develop an increased awareness of RP Group and IRPE community resources to enhance your racial equity and social justice work.
