Ways to Get Involved
As South Seattle College works toward implementing a Guided Pathways model for improving equitable student success and on-time program completion, the Guiding Team has developed a plan intended to better communicate with and involve more of you, our colleagues, in this process. Some of these elements are already in place, and others will ramp up as we move forward.
Regular e-mail updates
Sharing progress that’s been made under the essential pillars of Guided Pathways (clarify the path, help students choose and enter a path, help students stay on the path, ensure that students are learning), both by the Guiding Team and by divisions across campus. Those e-mails are also posted to the website under the Progress Updates section.
In-person, formative discussion
Guiding Team members will provide in-person updates at their respective division meetings and lead brief monthly and/or longer quarterly discussions/workshops. Guiding Team members will gather insights and feedback from those activities and report them back to the full team.
Cross-campus brainstorming, problem solving and generative discussion
From brown bag lunches to afternoon coffee, we hope to create opportunities and venues open to everyone. Topics may include facilitated discussion topics, best practices showcases from other institutions (farther along with Guided Pathways), data reflection forums, etc.
Workshops and lectures for cross-campus skill development
Professional development on Guided Pathways elements and practices, targeted for specific audiences. We’d like to survey the campus for topics of greatest interest.
