The committee provides overall guidance to colleges and recommendations to the Executive Committee with regard to the inquiry, design, and implementation of Guided Pathways frameworks and engages in broad, and inclusive discussion and inquiry about the diversity, action and inclusion integral in the Guided Pathways approach, framework and evidence.
