Guided Pathways

Evaluation of the California Community Colleges Education Planning Initiative (CAI) designed to provide feedback on the development and implementation of an education planning and degree audit system for the state.


Series of four inquiry guides documenting approaches and insights emerging from the Completion by Design initiative, focused on developing guided pathways to improve student completion and success.


This research is focused on understanding the role university educational deserts (UED) (areas with limited higher education options) have on transfer and the demographics of the students who live in these areas. This study will include a mapping of the California landscape where UEDs exist, followed by a robust quantitative analysis to explore the relationships between students’ distance to broad-access universities and their likelihood of transfer with special attention paid to the roles of race/ethnicity and income status.


Assessment of the Metro model collaboratively designed and implemented by City College of San Francisco (CCSF) and San Francisco State University (SFSU) faculty to examine the question of how and if colleges could restructure pathways to transfer and completion in order to improve student outcomes and reduce costs.


Evaluation assessing the effectiveness of San Jose State University’s faculty advisory pilot program.
