The Resource Center is your go-to spot for NPEA created resources to not only help you be more effective in your job, but to make it easier to connect with others in the NPEA community. Use the links below to explore our various resources.


NPEA Data Counts Project

NPEA Data Counts is a data project aimed at providing best practices, research, and resources around data collection and analysis, as well as determining the impact of our collective work on the educational access field and promoting positive outcomes for underserved students.

Launched in 2015, NPEA Data Counts recently finished its third round of data collection. The NPEA Data Counts project has thus far produced a number of reports, including the 2016 Summary and the 2018 Focus Groups Report.

In addition to these reports, NPEA has used this data to produce a series of spotlights focused on the best practices of members achieving great results with their data collection and analysis (with the permission of the members involved). Read these Data Champion Spotlights here.

Most recently, NPEA held a Data Counts Event in Boston, MA in May of 2019, titled "Using Data to Inform Practice". 45 educational professionals from 26 programs convened to discuss best practices and techniques on a number of themes related to using data. Read the event recap here!


Member Information Requests

Member Information Requests are one of the benefits of being an NPEA member, and allow programs to reach out to the NPEA network for advice on how to handle a difficult problem or approach a new project. Starting in 2019, we have begun to document and save these Information Requests so that all NPEA members can take advantage of them. 

To view the Information Requests, please click here.


Research Briefs

Research Briefs offer summaries of current research literature relevant to the field of access. These 2-3 page briefs provide you a concise, easily readable synthesis of a lengthier article, allowing you to stay abreast of current research.

Professional Development Calls and Webinars

In addition to our own professional development calls, we strive to stay abreast of webinars and other professional learning opportunities for our members. When available, we post archived copies of these calls and webinars so you can catch up on those you missed, or revisit a past favorite.
