Rob Johnstone, a national expert, researcher, and coach on guided pathways, will be visiting us again in February for two full days of sessions, questions, and presentations about Guided Pathways. All employees are invited to attend and participate in the keynote and open sessions throughout the two days. Dr. Johnson recommends that participants attend the keynote sessions if they plan to participate in a topic session.
Dr. Johnstone’s visit agenda is attached below. A few key events:
Welcome back to Winter Term! We’re moving ahead with Guided Pathways work this year, but there’s a lot of work to be done. The key to success in building guided pathways is involving multiple stakeholders, with multiple viewpoints and diverse experiences, in both defining the work and completing it. To this end, we’re holding information sessions about the teams we believe we’ll need to get started in this important work, and everyone is invited to attend, learn more, and discuss.
At the sessions, we’ll briefly discuss the teams that will form this term, their anticipated scope and potential projects, and the membership roles for each. If you’re curious about how to get into the work of guided pathways, please drop by one of these open sessions to ask questions or find out more.
At each session, we’ll also hand out this document, which provides an outline of anticipated Winter ’19 teams and positions. (It is also attached below as a PDF for ease of download). Stay tuned for a recruitment survey, coming out in Week 2, when we’ll start looking for interested applicants for all of the teams.
The dates for the sessions are below. As always, let us know if you have questions!
Welcome to Winter term! This post is a little late because the fall flew by, and posting it during break felt like a good way to make sure it would be lost in the virtual cloud.
We received valuable and informative feedback after our first visit from the LBCC team in the fall. It’s been collected in a spreadsheet that’s viewable online.
Evaluation is an important part of our ongoing project, and we appreciate hearing from you. If you’ve attended an event (or if you haven’t been able to), please let us know what you’ve thought. We’re looking forward to a new term of new opportunities to engage in Guided Pathways work!
Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Paul Jarrell, hosted an open college forum on Wednesday, Dec. 5 to discuss Guided Pathways. Thanks to all of the Lane employees who attended and asked questions! We look forward to further conversations about Guided Pathways next term.
Didn’t have a chance to attend? The recording of the session is below. Dr. Jarrell will also host an identical session on Friday, January 18, from 1:30-3 p.m. in Building 4, Room 106.
Guided Pathways, included in Lane’s Strategy Map and Strategic Priorities, provides a framework for redesigning a community college to improve students’ experiences, from entry through graduation. It is a model of integrated, college-wide approaches to student success based on intentionally designed, coherent, and structured educational and institutional practices. The framework is based in a student-centric viewpoint, and encourages clear pathways for students, focused advising and academic planning, and extensive outreach and communications throughout students’ course of study, resulting in increased equity in access, affordability, and student success.
Are you curious about how you can be involved?
Are you interested in understanding how guided pathways work will happen?
Would you like to learn how and where your expertise and skills can most effectively contribute to this student success work?
Join the Guided Pathways Co-Chairs at any of the following information sessions. All sessions will start with the same information describing the current plan for moving forward and include time for discussion or questions. All sessions are open to all Lane employees. These sessions will not be live streamed or recorded. If you’re not able to attend and would like to discuss these topics, please contact Jenn and/or Jennifer.
Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Dr. Paul Jarrell will host two College Forums on Guided Pathways. The same information will be presented at both sessions. One will be this term, during finals week. And the second, a repeat, will be during Winter term.

We’re looking forward to a visit from our down-the-road neighbors at Linn-Benton Community College. They’ve been working on Guided Pathways for the past several years, and they’re bringing experienced faculty, staff, and administrators to present on and discuss their experiences. Please join us at any or all of the following open sessions that day:
