IRPE Summer Institute

 2021 Institutional Research, Planning, and Effectiveness (IRPE) Summer Institute Curriculum

The 2021 Institutional Research, Planning, and Effectiveness (IRPE) Summer Institute is a comprehensive learning experience with a focus on advancing racial justice and equity across California’s community colleges. The institute is designed to be an immersive learning experience that emphasizes equity-minded leadership, in which participants will reflect on their own equity journeys and work at their institutions and learn strategies to integrate racial equity and social justice into college processes, structures, and practices. The institute will span two weeks, including four days of live sessions, and will address core competencies that will culminate in an opportunity to identify, apply, and evaluate essential skills as an IRPE professional.
