Guided pathways are a key intra-institutional redesign strategy for postsecondary institutions. Colleges should include the multiple efforts for student success including the Basic Skills and Student Outcome Transformation Program, Career Advancement Academies, Student Equity & Achievement Act, Strong Workforce Program and more.

Additionally, guided pathway colleges could benefit from collaborating with the Adult Education Program (AEP), Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title II adult education, and WIOA Title I youth and adult career pathway programs. Further, connecting this initiative to WIOA Title I industry sector partnerships could help leverage employer engagement in high-occupations.
