Wheelhouse Research Collaboration Council

Wheelhouse Research Collaboration Council


The Wheelhouse Research Collaboration Council (RCC) was formed in 2022 to help shape and advise our ongoing research into enrollment impacts and recovery strategies during the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. This work is supported by $3.6 million from the U.S. Institute for Education Sciences for the three-year Wheelhouse/CA Education Lab project titled Evidence to Inform Improvement: Supporting California Community Colleges in Pandemic Recovery
