SANFORD - A team from Central Carolina Community College recently attended the two-day Equitable Guided Career Pathways Retreat sponsored by the North Carolina Student Success Center. Dr. Rob Johnstone, Founder and President of the National Center for Inquiry & Improvement (NCII), was the presenter.
At the event, the team learned more about integrating equitable guided career pathways and strategic planning, identifying key equity gaps with the goal of establishing a set of college-specific barriers, using a design and implementation framework, and reflecting on regional occupational/living wage data in our service areas. The team also planned next steps in implementing guided career pathways at scale.
Participants were, from left to right: Jalen Cheek, Education Navigator; Ashley Riley, English Instructor; Christie McDougald, Lead Practical Nursing Instructor; Jesse Jacondin, Institutional Research Analyst; Adam Wade, Dean, Student Onboarding and Success; Kristi Short, Vice President, Student Learning; and Dr. Rob Johnstone, Founder and President of NCII.
