Oregon Pathways Symposium - October 19-20, 2017
Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel
8235 NE Airport Way, Portland, OR  97220

  • Thursday, October 19, 2017: Guided Pathways Overview with Rob Johnstone – a broad overview of Guided Pathways targeted at those who may not be familiar with the framework; potential break outs for “birds of a feather”- Q & A with colleagues from other colleges who have implemented Pathways.
  • Friday, October 20, 2017: Introduction to the Community College Research Center (CCRC) Guided Pathways Readiness Assessment with Hana Lahr, CCRC Research Associate – Hana has worked with the 30 colleges in the AACC national pathways institutes to complete the assessment and will walk our college teams through the assessment including why it is important, what colleges can expect regarding analysis and follow-up, and how the information will be used. It is the recommendation of the Oregon Student Success Center (OSSC) Steering Committee that all Oregon community colleges complete the assessment in Fall 2017 and teams will have until Thanksgiving to submit completed assessments (it will not be completed as part of the symposium)

It is recommended that each college bring a team of 5-10 people both days of the symposium. Recommended team members include: president, vice presidents of student services and instruction, deans (CTE and transfer), advising director, registrar, faculty (program chairs and dev ed), IT, and IR.  A web registration will soon be developed so you can register teams.
