Implementing Pathways at Scale

Conference: American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Annual Convention
Date and Time: April 10, 2016 8:30–10:30 AM
Location: Chicago, IL
Venue: Hyatt Regency Chicago | Crystal Ballroom

Four years after the release of the report of the 21st Century Commission on the Future of Community Colleges, AACC is leading a major national partnership to help community colleges fundamentally redesign students’ educational experiences. The Pathways Project involves eight partner organizations and 30 competitively selected institutions in work to design and implement pathways at scale—for all students, from college entry to college completion. A major result of the project will be a strengthened capacity for much larger numbers of colleges to undertake and successfully accomplish this redesign work. Featured in this special session were key lessons from the work in progress, from national partners and college presidents.
