Guided Pathways

Welcome to El Camino College’s Guided Pathways

Guided Pathways is an integrated and institution wide framework based on intentionally designed clear and coherent structured educational experiences that promotes better enrollment decisions and prepares students for future success. The Guided Pathways framework integrates support services in ways that make it easier for students to get the help they need? To reach their goals while at El Camino College.

Invitation to join Education Advisory Board (EAB)

The Education Advisory Board (EAB) helps education leaders solve their biggest problems. EAB starts by forging and finding best practices to address education’s top challenges with research forums dedicated to presidents, provosts, chief business officers, and many other key academic and administrative leaders. Through these forums, EAB provides peer-test research that answers education’s most pressing issues.

EAB offers insights with services that include:
