Santa Ana College is one of twenty Community Colleges selected to design and implement structured academic and career pathways for all incoming students by 2019.
The four pillars of Guided Pathways are:
- Clarify paths to student end goals
- Help students chose and enter a pathway
- Help students stay on the path
- Ensure that students are learning
Santa Ana College will send a team to six institutes, where they will receive guidance and structured time to plan for campus work to create clear pathways to high-quality credentials and develop the change management strategies needed to accomplish this goal. The 5-member team includes the president, a faculty leader, and other stakeholders. The college will receive support from a team of pathways coaches and information on complementary reform efforts in California that can help support specific facets of their work.
The project is funded by College Futures Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, and the Teagle Foundation, in addition to fees paid by participating colleges.
