What We Know About Guided Pathways

This practitioner packet is designed to help community college leaders and staff who are considering guided pathways reforms at their college. Part one, What We Know About Guided Pathways, describes the reform model and summarizes evidence supporting its design principles. Part two, Implementing Guided Pathways at Miami Dade College: A Case Study, describes how one college went about implementing guided pathways reforms. Part three, Implementing Guided Pathways: Tips and Tools, offers practical advice on how to get started on reforms following the guided pathways model.

Also provided is an adoption template that colleges can use to help assess their progress toward adopting essential guided pathways practices at scale (Guided Pathways Essential Practices: Scale of Adoption Self-Assessment—updated June 2017).

Note: A more recent CCRC practitioner packet on guided pathways reforms, What We Are Learning About Guided Pathways, was published in April 2018.
