Implementing Guided Pathways: Early Insights From the AACC Pathways Colleges

By Davis Jenkins, Hana Lahr & John Fink 

This report provides insight into how colleges are planning and implementing “guided pathways” reforms based on the early work of 30 colleges participating in the American Association of Community Colleges’ (AACC) Pathways Project. These colleges have committed to redesigning their programs and support services for all incoming students by fall 2018 according to the guided pathways model adopted by AACC based on CCRC’s research.  View the Executive Summary and the full report here.  

Guided Pathways Institute and Michigan Student Success Network Meetings (March 30-31 at Lake Michigan College)

Community College Research Center (CCRC) Guided Pathways Essential Practices: Scale of Adoption Self-Assessment

This tool is designed to help your college assess how far along you are toward adopting essential guided pathways practices at scale. The essential practices listed are examined in CCRC’s recently published book, Redesigning America's Community Colleges: A Clearer Path to Student Success, by Thomas Bailey, Shanna Smith Jaggars, and Davis Jenkins (Harvard University Press, 2015).  A PDF version is available here.

New Report on Early Momentum from CCRC

In this new brief, Early Momentum Metrics: Why They Matter for College Improvement, the authors propose three measures of “early momentum” that colleges can use to gauge whether institutional reforms are improving student outcomes including Credit momentum—attempting at least 15 semester credits in the first term or at least 30 semester credits in the first academic year; Gateway momentum—taking and passing pathway-appropriate college-level math and college-level English in the first academic year; and Program momentum—taking and passing at least nine semester credits in the student’s field of study in the first academic year.  Research is beginning to show that these near-term metrics predict long-term success. In addition, these metrics focus attention on initial conditions at colleges that are particularly important for solidifying the foundation for student success.
