Guided Pathways Work Featured at 2022 League
For Innovation Conference

"It Takes a Village: Facilitating Institutional Change" – A presentation on De Anza's Guided Pathways initiatives by Anu Khanna, instructor in Communication Studies and Intercultural Studies, Brian Malone, instructor in English, and Sarah Wallace, facilities and equipment assistant for Athletics was given on February 28th. Many participants were impressed by our work and had plenty of questions for the presenters. Our very own Brandon Bailey thoughtfully wrote a piece entitled, "Discover Your Village: Guided Pathways at De Anza College." Highly recommended read!

De Anza's unique approach to institutionalizing Guided Pathways through the Villages has become a model for other community colleges, some of which have personally reached out to our leadership for guidance.  

The League for Innovation in the Community College is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to cultivate innovation in the community college environment.

Guided Pathways Workshop Series for Classified
Professionals Finishes On a High Note

As part of the continued commitment to weave all employees into Villages to create support teams for services, we have had four workshops for classified professionals to explore possibilities of how best to weave their area into villages. The community workshops focused on collecting the classified professionals' voices for Guided Pathways design of villages within their area. 
The workshops included:
  • Discussion of the Guided Pathways framework 
  • Exploring the benefits of redesigning the students' onboarding experience at De Anza
  • Listening to and validating the classified professional experience
  • Introductions to the implementation structures at other community colleges
  • Student enrollment data according to meta-majors 
  • Ongoing dialogue that created interest in the pilot opportunity
"This series has been a great way to connect with other classified professionals to understand how we can work together to better serve our students and each other. I look forward to working with faculty and administrators in my village to help students, faculty, and staff come together as a community." --Leah Riley, Senior Division Assistant, PSME

"The Classified Professional workshops on Guided Pathways, has helped me to see the vision, to feel the enthusiasm, and to understand the dedication my colleagues show for our De Anza College students. It has grasped my attention, making me excited to learn more, to be more involved and fulfill my duty of serving students on their academic journey."--
Lisa Rodriguez, Administrative Assistant II, A&R

This work will continue throughout spring quarter,  including Classified Professionals Development Day.
