Building relationships with students is emphasized and the negative connotation of probation is flipped to a positive one by adopting a student-centered compassionate approach.

    Guided Pathways – The Villages  - short video

    The video began with the story of the creation of meta-majors and culminated in the vision of the villages. Questions from attendees affirmed that students would be able to move easily from one village to another, students may join multiple villages, and villages are designed for students to be able to explore majors that they might not otherwise have known about. Undeclared majors would be guided to the village that most closely matched their interests and students with undeclared majors would be quickly introduced to services that would assist them in exploring and choosing an academic pathway. Guided Pathways is an example of bringing resources to students and meeting students where they are at.

    More information about Guided Pathways can be found on their webpage.
