September 2020–July 2023
CCRC estimates that more than 340 community colleges across the country are undertaking large-scale guided pathways reforms as part of formal statewide or national initiatives, while many other colleges are attempting to implement guided pathways practices on their own. Many of these colleges have expressed a desire for additional guidance and more practical, easy-to-digest instructional materials to help them plan and implement guided pathways reforms. To support their efforts, CCRC is developing a set of resources, which include:
- Workshop curricula and materials based on CCRC research on topics critical to implementing guided pathways. The curricula will be designed for national technical assistance providers, state agencies, and colleges to use in training and professional development for college practitioners and will be made freely available on CCRC’s website.
- Summer institutes designed for institutional researchers and guided pathways reform leaders that are seeking to use data and research to support the implementation of pathways reforms. The first institute was designed for colleges that were just beginning their guided pathways work and were not part of existing guided pathways networks, especially rural colleges. The second institute focused on colleges further along in guided pathways that are looking for data and programmatic support.
