Guided Pathways: Design and Results

Tuesday, May 21 at 1:00pm ET

The data shows it works: College students are more likely to complete a degree in a timely fashion if they follow a guided pathways approach, mapping out a highly structured, educationally coherent program that aligns with students' goals for careers and further education. Within that structure, colleges align support and the achievement of milestones along the way.

After an overview of guided pathways from SOVA, hear from two Frontier Set sites, Fayetteville State University (FSU) and Miami Dade College (MDC), who have adopted these principles both within their own institutions and also in conjunction with collaborating institutions (including other Frontier Set sites) with whom they share students and pathways. State legislative policies have driven these changes, and indications are that it’s making a big difference for students. Learn more about MDC’s Shark Path and transfer articulations, and the pathways and financial incentives built into FSU’s $10K Challenge.

Speakers: Paul Markham, SOVA; Thalia Wilson, Fayetteville State University; Julie Alexander, Alicia Giovanni, Miami Dade College; and Paul Markham, Sova Solutions.
