Research Academy


The CTEOS Research Academy is an annual event hosted by the Office of Institutional Research of Santa Rosa Junior College.
The Research Academy promotes education about CTEOS. Click below for information about past and upcoming events


Due to COVID-19, the 2020 CTEOS Research Academy held a series of virtual workshops that support the CTE community in the four commitments from the Vision for Success: 

  • Foster the use of data, inquiry and evidence.
  • Take ownership of goals and performance.
  • Enable action and thoughtful innovation
  • Lead the work of partnering across systems.

These workshops of up to a dozen stakeholders consisted of 2 to 6 sessions over a series of weeks and gathered practitioners from the field to dive deep into CTE in ways we have not been able to in the past.

Thank you for supporting the 2020 CTEOS Resarch Academy Virtual Workshops.
