Grossmont College Selected for CAGP

We are thrilled to announce that Grossmont College has been selected to be in the second cohort of the California Guided Pathways Demonstration Project! 


As part of the CAGP, we will be receiving guidance from a team of advisors who have years of experience transforming colleges into pathways colleges. 


In light of the new reality we are living, the guidance and support we will receive as CAGP Cohort 2 awardees will be invaluable as we move forward in our efforts to support our most vulnerable students in their time of dire need. 

What is Guided Pathways?

A "Guided Pathway" is the integration of Instruction, Student Services, and Learning Support into a coherent, intentional, and informed experience for all students leading to success, completion, and career or transfer. Guided Pathways framework strives to ensure student success by integrating college-wide resources and mapping a highly-structured, clearly-defined program or “pathway” for students to follow starting with an end goal in mind.

Guided Pathways is an equity focused and holistically driven approach to the student experience. The goal is to make clear for students:


1)  The required course selections and sequence depending on their education and career goal(s).


2) To articulate the purpose of each course and outline specific skills gained as they apply to a student’s career focus.
