|Institutional Effectiveness Toss Off|
The first California Guided Pathways Project (CGPP) Institute was held this week in Costa Mesa. I had the pleasure of joining my AACC colleagues, Aspen Institute leaders, and the Bakersfield and Mt. San Antonio College presidents in making a presentation on our national AACC Guided Pathways Project experience. 20 California colleges were chosen to participate in the first round of CGPP Institutes. Out of the 20 colleges, a few have already done much of the work of setting Meta-majors (or a term of their own liking), and mapping courses leading to the Meta-majors. Mt. SAC (AACC National Guided Pathways Project College), has completed this process for over 70 programs and is moving to implementation. Other colleges are at the very beginning and are highly engaged in the process and the opportunity to increase student completion. CGPP will also go a long way toward supporting our underrepresented students that are often challenged by our existing system of application, matriculation, academic planning, enrollment, and the pathway to completion.

The California Guided Pathways Project will help 20 California community colleges implement an integrated, institution-wide approach to student success by creating structured educational experiences that support each student from point of entry to attainment of high-quality postsecondary credentials and careers.
