Guided Pathways: A Resource Guide

The guided pathways model addresses the entire student experience, creates a framework to unify and align elements around the goal of helping students choose, enter, and complete a program of study, and starts with student end goals for careers.

Guided Pathways represents the new normal for transforming the student experience and improving student success rates in higher education. Pathways is a comprehensive approach to reform that is a system redesign of the student experience from an initial connection to the college all the way to completion. STLCC, after years of declining retention rates, has the opportunity to expand its focus beyond determining if students are college-ready; but determining if we are student-ready. Reframing our focus on Pathways will move STLCC to the next level of organizational and student excellence.
