Career Ladders Project supports the inquiry, design, implementation, and assessment of Guided Pathways in California community colleges. To build capacity for evidence-based institutional redesign, focused on equity, we collaborate with colleges to understand their structures and goals, redesign systems, and implement change.

We created a Guided Pathways Inquiry Guide to help jumpstart redesign. Released in fall 2020, the Design Guide for Integrating Student Supports provides information and strategies to redesign key areas of the student’s journey–onboarding, the first year, and counseling.


The Examples of GP Redesign were produced by Career Ladders Project with funding from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.
