Guided Pathways

Guided Pathways

In order to assist students in completing programs faster, we at the RP Group explore how colleges can rethink and restructure the ways in which students connect to, enroll in, progress through, and successfully complete their educational goals. This exploration extends to strategies around creating coherent programs of study, revising the intake process, integrating instruction and student services, and monitoring student progress.
