    Guided Pathways Presentation

    Guided Pathways is a California statewide initiative from the chancellor’s office that has already commenced nationwide. All of the colleges (114) submitted their 18-month work plan to participate in the program and most are in the early adoption stage.

    • Provides all students with a set of clear course-taking patterns that promotes better enrollment decisions and prepares students for future success.
      • Make all the pathways available, navigable, and organized.
    • Integrates support services in ways that make it easier for students to get the help they need during every stop of their community college experience.
      • Provides an opportunity to see how instruction and student services are available
        to students.

    A couple recommendations were made:

    • Run a student pilot for example, using a STEM program
    • Review the EOPS model that has some similar components

    Information from the Guided Pathways committee can be found on the Academic Senate webpage where the workplan, self-assessment, and crosswalk can be found.
