Mission/ Priorities

Guided Pathways Mission Statement and Priorities

Context: Approximately half of our students do not continue from one semester to the next in their first year of attendance. An extremely small percentage completes transfer-level Math and English in one year. Very few successfully accomplish their educational and/or transfer goals within three years, if at all. This reality points to institutional obstacles that need to be addressed.

Redesigning ELAC- Enhancing Learning and Achieving Completion

Mission: Redesigning ELAC is an equity-focused enhancement committed to student learning and advancing degrees, certificates, and skills-building course completion providing clear guidance with active support of faculty and support services.


Priorities*:

  • Academic mapping
  • Identifying Meta-majors
  • Structured on-boarding processes that benefit from college-wide collaboration
  • Proactive academic and career counseling and academic support services enhanced by intrusive support college-wide
  • Innovative and transformational professional development for faculty, staff, and administrators
  • Enhancing technological systems to clarify pathways, help students select a path, and help students stay on a path
  • Institute a redesign where systems can be continually evaluated and enhanced through input from college community
  • Embracing a holistic and integrated approach to student advancement through increased student use of continuous wrap around support services

* In addition to this list of priorities, other elements from the multi-year work plan will continue to be implemented, such as increasing connections between career exploration, job market, contextualized learning and curriculum redesign.
