More than 350 colleges nationwide are using the pathways framework to redesign academic and support services to improve student and institutional outcomes. Many colleges have been at this work for several years, iterating and improving the comprehensive, integrated systems, structures, and policies that enable all students to succeed. Members of the Pathways Collaborative—a group of organizations committed to improving rates of college completion, transfer, and attainment of jobs with value in the labor market—shared key outcomes, metrics, and insights about productive pathways implementation across of range of institutions and states. They also identified the ongoing challenges and opportunities for higher educational institutions looking to redesign the student experience more effectively and equitably.
