Acknowledgements, Much has happened since NCII released Guided Pathways Demystified Exploring 10. Commonly Asked Questions in fall 2015 The guided pathways movement has continued to. evolve and spread due to the great work of numerous people and organizations across the. country As I did in Guided Pathways Demystified I I again thank my good friends at the. Community College Research Center CCRC Teachers College Columbia University whose. seminal research and writing on the topic of guided pathways have served as a foundation. for this movement and whose partnership has help shaped the issues we address here in. Guided Pathways Demystified II Addressing 10 New Questions as the Movement Gains. Momentum I also extend many thanks to my friends at Jobs for the Future JFF who in. addition to supporting the writing and release of this paper have continued to champion. the guided pathways cause with their group of 14 State Student Success Centers SSCs all. of which are catalyzing guided pathways work across the colleges in their states While the. questions in this paper are assembled from a wide range of sources it is my time working in. the JFF SSC states that has perhaps had the biggest impact on my views on these questions. and the conversations they can inspire, Since the writing of the first paper other organizations have also significantly evolved this. work around the country most notably the American Association of Community Colleges. AACC through its national Pathways Project AACC s leadership sends a vital message to. the field By working in combination with key partners including Achieving the Dream ATD. the Aspen Institute the Center for Community College Student Engagement CCSSE CCRC. Jobs for the Future Public Agenda and NCII AACC has helped to develop a common voice. on guided pathways that provides tremendous and important direction to the development. of this movement at the state and local levels, As with Guided Pathways Demystified I this paper would not have been possible without. the support of the Bill Melinda Gates Foundation for Completion by Design in general and. specifically for the support of the blog post series on www completionbydesign org that. originally housed the thinking found herein Thanks again to Jill Wohlford and Cheryl Fong. who were invaluable in making sure the blog post series offered great content from a wide. range of national leaders invested in the success of guided pathways The field benefits. considerably from this support,Dr Rob Johnstone,Founder and President NCII.

pathways This resource responded to a number of valid issues raised by these early. adopters including how to address concerns about compromising our higher education. values practical considerations about control and enrollment and apprehensions about the. impact on students learning and development, In the two short years since that time community colleges and state university systems. have demonstrated an explosion of interest in guided pathways National initiatives such. as Completion by Design and the AACC Pathways Project now in its second phase are. establishing standards in the field for this work developing an experiential knowledge base. and creating numerous resources that colleges can draw on as they consider and enter this. movement State level efforts in Arkansas California Michigan Ohio Tennessee Texas and. Washington are replicating and customizing national models and providing frameworks and. support for colleges to explore strategize and move toward implementation Combined. with uptake at individual colleges these efforts are propelling this movement forward. expanding the reach of guided pathways to touch more students and place them on a. positive trajectory, Through hands on technical assistance and feedback from countless faculty and. administrators NCII and our national partners including the Community College Research.

Achieving the Dream ATD and Public Agenda are now encountering a new round of. questions While some philosophical pushback to GP continues to surface many inquiries. bubbling up from the field now relate to the ground level implications of pursuing this. approach Notably many questions put the student experience at the center of the. discussion This shift shows that colleges are accepting that to best support student success. at scale they need to abandon business as usual and rethink and intentionally design the. student experience to ensure that more people enter progress through and complete. programs of study and reach their educational and career goals In turn institutions are now. turning to GP to help orchestrate that change, Chances are if you picked up this resource you are a faculty leader or administrator. working at a community college or state university who is.

Culture change is fundamental to the success of any organizational redesign so. let us start with two common questions we encounter in our work with educators that. relate to the foundational attitudes customs and beliefs of our institutions. 1 What makes guided pathways different that is not just another educational fad. 2 How do we further emphasize equity and inclusion in the guided pathways. The first question could demonstrate either the natural desire to hold to past approaches or. an understandable reluctance to be drawn into another initiative du jour while the second. one reflects a new cultural direction in the field focused on ensuring all students have the. conditions for success Where does guided pathways fit in this mix We explore these. questions in the following section,1 What makes guided pathways different that is. not just another educational fad, Let s cut to the chase anyone who has worked for more than a few years in education has. experienced the endless wave of initiatives touted as the thing that will boost student. success and we have seen many of these reform efforts come and go despite best. intentions So it is expected even encouraging when this query inevitably surfaces in. sessions designed to introduce guided pathways to faculty and front line staff It is only. when you hear this type of question that you realize people are thinking maybe even. hoping that this time might be different, It is true that for many decades now we have witnessed a parade of initiatives learned. dozens of acronyms and absorbed numerous convocation speeches on how the latest trend. will transform our colleges and students Yet the baseline culture models structure and.
