Guided Pathways Task Force

The ASCCC Guided Pathways Task Force supports faculty and local academic senates as they participate in the development and implementation of a guided pathways framework. The primary mission of the task force is to support faculty involvement, participatory governance processes, and other elements of guided pathways work that are connected to the academic and professional matters (10+1) that are the purview of the senate. The task force will continually consider the needs and challenges identified by local senates and senate leaders to help faculty identify and implement options that are based upon ASCCC positions and papers and that are appropriate for their college’s culture and student populations.  

If you haven't already please sign up for the Guided Pathways Listserv to receive updates regarding resources, webinars, newsletters, and more. 

If your college is looking for an ASCCC Guided Pathways Resource Team to come to your campus, please consider requesting a visit to support faculty through the process: ASCCC REQUEST SERVICES.

Program Review Processes and GP

Tuesday, December 1 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
