 IRPE Listservs: What's the Difference Between RP and RESPL?

We’d like to share a jointly created resource, which augments the listserv materials already available through The RP Group and the Chancellor’s Office.

This new quick reference document, IRPE Listservs: What’s the Difference Between RP and RESPL?, is intended to clarify the purposes and mechanics for RP Listserv and RESPL-ALL listserv. As RESPL has become more active, we want to make sure people (particularly IRPE office leads) are aware of how to access it. The Chancellor’s Office primarily uses RESPL to share announcements and information with the college-designated contact(s), most often the chief research officers (i.e., the most senior person in each IRPE office). In addition, the Chancellor’s Office simultaneously sends selected communications that are most relevant to the broader IRPE community to both RESPL and RP listservs.
