Over the past few years as we’ve been conceptualizing and developing this user-focused platform we’ve had a number of working names including the Lifelong Learning Portal and the Rhode Island Agent. Although the name has changed and the concept has evolved, we have remained focused on:
- providing Rhode Island adults with access to quality local, state, and national resources to help them achieve career and education goals
- helping workforce and education professionals serve their clients and students
- supporting agency outreach and reducing duplication of effort.
Buildout of the RI Resource Hub has been funded by the Rhode Island Data Sharing Project, a Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems Grant from the Institute of Education Sciences to the Rhode Island Department of Education. We are one piece of this exciting program and our new name reflects our affiliation with the RI Data Hub and the future RI Research Hub.
