CCRC Webinar on Costs and Funding of Guided Pathways in California

Date and Time: February 03, 2021 2– 3PM EST
Location: Online

CCRC's new research on guided pathways tackles two big questions: How much will guided pathways cost, and how can colleges fund and sustain the large-scale changes involved? This webinar provided insights into these questions with a focus on the economics of guided pathways in California community colleges.

CCRC Senior Research Scholar Davis Jenkins summarized findings from CCRC's new research on guided pathways economics. Sonya Christian, President of Bakersfield College, and Anthony Culpepper, Executive Vice President of Administrative Services at Glendale Community College, shared how their institutions have approached financing guided pathways reforms on their campuses. Lizette Navarette, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Facilities Planning at the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, discussed the implications of this research and experience for California community college leaders who are trying to figure out how to fund large-scale student success reforms in a challenging fiscal environment.
