Redesigning the Student Experience…the Guided Pathways Approach

Upon the conclusion of our first year of inquiry, MiraCosta College is dedicated to redesigning the Student Experience... The Guided Pathways Approach.

Guided pathways is a student-centered approach that can dramatically increase the number of students earning community college credentials, while closing equity gaps. Rather than work with a subset of students, guided pathways are a college-wide undertaking that provides a framework for integrating California-based initiatives such as SSSP, Equity, Basic Skills Transformation, the Strong Workforce Program, and California College Promise.
Guided pathways provide students with clear, educationally coherent program maps that include specific course sequences, progress milestones, and program learning outcomes.
