The CCC system engaged the Guided Pathways (GP) framework to advance equity, transform institutions, redefine college/career readiness, and redesign student support. Implementing GP aims to clear paths for students and remove systemic obstacles to their success. GP is an opportunity for system-wide transformation to rethink how existing structures, programs, and practices align with student needs.

Description: Over half of all college-going students identify as first-generation, and the higher education community must play an active role in advancing the success of first-generation students. Implementing an asset-based approach to first-gen student success begins with an understanding of the first-gen student definition and intersectional identities. The presenters will offer a review of the literature to ground a foundational understanding, discuss a framework for implementing an asset-based approach, and provide examples of model institutions.

Presenter(s): Deana Waintraub Stafford, NASPA
