Build a foundation for Guided Pathways

Guided Pathways is a national education reform movement aimed at increasing student access to success. Guided Pathways, according to Dr. Rob Johnstone, “aims to better structure student connection, entry, progress, and completion.”

These initiatives will help us prepare to implement Guided Pathways:

  1. Re-design advising
    • Build capacity to understand student transfer goals and enhance completion outcomes and the transfer experience
  1. Support best-practices in teaching and learning in developmental education and gateway courses
  2. Review and enhance academic, faculty, and student service organizational structures, including:
    1. Supporting part-time faculty
    2. Increasing cross-functional collaboration within and between campuses
  3. Review strategic course schedule practices
