Revelation’s Web 2.0 Toolkit (O4W) Relieves Administrative Burden at River Parishes Community College.
By Joyce Wells, DBTA.
River Parishes Community College (RPCC) is an open-admission, 2-year, public institution. It is located in the small Ascension Parish town of Sorrento in what is known as the River Parishes region of the state because of the parishes’ proximity to the Mississippi River. The college provides courses up to and including certificates and associate’s degrees and also provides programs for personal, professional, and academic growth to the communities it services.
Now more than a decade old, RPCC was created in 1999 after the Louisiana Community and Technical College System was created to address the fact that, though Louisiana was one of the most populous states in the country, it was without a community college system to serve its citizens. RPCC joined six other community colleges in the state under the new system, and now serves students in Ascension, Assumption, St. James, St. John, St. Charles, Tangipahoa, and Washington Parishes, as well as portions of Iberville and Livingston Parishes.
