Guided Pathways

At Fullerton College we believe that Guided Pathways is equity work. We began our Pathways journey in September of 2017. Our discussions and inquiries have included thousands of students and hundreds of faculty, staff, and managers. Our goal is simple: We want all students that choose to become Hornets to have an equitable experience and increased success.

The Pathways Steering Committee (PSC) was created to organize and oversee campus work on Guided Pathways. This Committee is co-chaired by Dr. Dani Wilson, Dean of the Library/Learning Resources, Instructional Support Programs and Services, and Dr. Matt Taylor, Department Coordinator for the Department of Communication Studies. The PSC is composed of eight instructional faculty, eight managers, four classified professionals, and two students. The PSC reports to both the Faculty Senate and the President’s Advisory Council.

More than 450 faculty and staff gathered in the Campus Theatre for the 2018 Spring Convocation where the discussion focused on the state’s new Guided Pathways initiative.
During Spring Convocation, Professor Joe Carrithers led a Q& A about Guided Pathways with Theresa Tena, Executive Vice Chancellor Institutional Effectiveness and Innovation at the CCC Chancellor’s Office, and Janet Fulks, Bakersfield College faculty member and ASCCC Faculty Lead on Guided Pathways Capacity Building.
More than 200 faculty, staff and students participated in breakout sessions that focused on developing the college’s Guided Pathways plan after Spring Convocation.

The PSC created four work groups to oversee the implementation of Guided Pathways at Fullerton College. They include:

Work Group #1: Creating the Path
This work group is focused on defining the Hornet Pathways we will use to organize our over 200 academic programs on campus. Work Group #1 is also responsible for working with our academic programs to create clear two and three year curriculum maps. This work group is led by:

For example, this work group is looking at campus outreach, the application process, financial aid, and registration. This work group is led by:
