Our Guided Pathways Plan

The California Guided Pathway Project is designed to substantially improve our students’ chances of completing their educational and career preparation goals. The idea behind the guided pathways framework is straightforward – college students are more likely to complete a degree in a timely fashion if they choose a program and develop an academic plan early on, have a clear road map of the courses they need to take to complete a credential, and receive guidance and support to help them stay on plan.

Academic Senate Resolution - Fall 2017
White Paper on Guided Pathways - Spring 2018
Moorpark College's Guided Pathways Work Plan - Spring 2018

Moorpark College began its exploration into the Guided Pathways framework in Spring 2017, with professional development events that included presentations provided by experts in the nationwide guided pathways implementation. Through these discussions and the writing of the college’s 2017 Self-Assessment, the college decided to begin our exploration of guided pathways through four workgroups (Inquiry Teams), coordinated by a steering group consisting of a diverse group of members representing a wide range of college programs and perspectives.
