Conference: American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Annual Convention
Date and Time: April 23, 2017 8:30–10:30 AM
Location: New Orleans, LA

AACC is leading a major national partnership to help community colleges fundamentally redesign students’ educational experiences. The AACC Pathways Project, launched in fall 2015, works with 30 colleges in 17 states and now is also supporting guided pathways scaling initiatives in multiple states. A major objective of the work is to learn along the way about how (and how well) guided pathways work in promoting student progress, completion, and equity.

Featured in this special session were notably positive data on results and emerging lessons about the challenges of implementing pathways at scale—for all students, from college entry to college completion.
