Guided Pathways

Guided Pathways Pillars 

The idea behind Guided Pathways is straightforward. 

College students are more likely to complete a degree in a timely fashion if they choose a program and develop an academic plan early on, have a clear road map of the courses they need to complete a credential, and receive guidance and support to help them stay on plan.

The 2015 publication Redesigning America’s Community Colleges outlines the Guided Pathways approach to student success reformation.  LBCC is proud to be one of the initial 30 colleges selected to participate in the Pathways Project led by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).  LBCC recognized that by revolutionizing their policies, programs, and services with a focus on the 4 main focus pillars they could improve student success and completion.

  • Clarifying the student path
  • Getting students on a path
  • Keeping students on a path
  • Ensuring students are learning
