The Guided Pathways (GP) Institutes are a series of intensive sessions where colleges dive deeply into Guided Pathways to learn how to implement institution-wide change. The NC SSC 2022 GP Institute will be a series of five virtual workshops — called the NC GPS 100 Series — that will begin in January 2022.
Since the NC GPS 100 Series Institutes will be virtual for Spring 2022, all 58 NC community colleges are invited to participate. In the past, the institute had been open to Cohort Guided Pathway Colleges. For the NC GPS 100 Series, colleges may participate in whichever combination of institutes as prioritized and as many faculty and staff as most helpful. It is recommended that colleges new to guided pathways participate in all five sessions.
