Purpose

Guided Pathways is a redesign of the student experience to include early decision making about educational and career goals to help students get on a path, stay on that path, and ensure that they are learning what they need in order to succeed. The Guided Pathways Steering Committee coordinates Guided Pathways efforts, supports Guided Pathways workgroups, and communicates with faculty and staff about the progress of Guided Pathways work at the College.
