Guided Pathways

Students are more likely to complete a degree on time if they have a clear academic road map and receive strong support to help them get on a path early in their college careers and stay on the path through graduation. The Aspen Institute College Excellence Program is a partner in the American Association of Community Colleges Pathways Project, a collaborative effort to help community colleges design and implement structured academic and career pathways at scale for all students. As a member of the Pathways Collaborative of national support partners and community college reform experts, CEP delivers elements of the Student Success Leadership Curriculum to support community colleges in developing effective change leadership strategies and has helped design and deliver professional development on improving transfer student success using our Tackling Transfer resources.

The College Excellence Program has also partnered with Jobs for the Future (JFF), another member of the Pathways Collaborative, to deliver targeted leadership development through the national network of state-level Student Success Centers. CEP delivers customized professional development workshops for trustees, presidents, and other community college leaders on the topics of presidential hiring, change management, and equity leadership in the context of guided pathways implementation.
