The RP Group
Leading from the Middle


Professional development for community college “middle” leaders working to strengthen their students’ success and the effectiveness of their institution...


LFM began in January 2013 with 47 faculty leaders, classified staff, chairs, deans, and directors from 13 colleges interested in activating improvements at the local level. To date, we have served more than 300 community college practitioners, including deans, directors, department chairs, faculty coordinators, classified staff, and teaching faculty.

Today, we are faced with implementing an array of statewide initiatives and now, Guided Pathways. In light of this and other factors, California Community Colleges need leadership development more than ever. Our institutions must have strong, innovative “middle” leaders who can effectively work with executive staff to address the myriad of reforms facing our institutions, to facilitate communication, and to move stakeholders to action. The RP Group is developing this group of critical change makers through our Leading from the Middle (LFM) Academy.
