Community college leaders have talked about repairing the "leaky pipeline" of community college persistence for years. However, in spite of overwhelming commitment to student success and millions of dollars invested in reform, three-year and six-year completion rates have plateaued.
As more state funds become tied to institutional performance and the public increases pressure on higher education to demonstrate return on investment, EAB members have sought support to help more students enroll, persist, and succeed. At the same time, the term “Guided Pathways” has permeated into virtually every conversation about community college student success, and leaders are wondering how best to approach this ambitious model for institutional redesign.
Most agree on the goals of the Guided Pathways model:
- Clarify pathways to end goals
- Help students choose pathways
- Help students stay on path
- Ensure students are learning
The challenge is creating a student success strategy that serves all students at scale, and meets the needs of budget-constrained and diversifying college campuses.
