Guided Pathways Workgroups
Following in CCC’s tradition of inclusivity and shared governance, a cross-constituency workgroup structure has been created. Groups are led by tri-chairs: one classified staff member, one faculty member and one manager. The purpose and value of this structure is that the perspective and expertise of a broad cross-section of voices are at the table.
If you are interested in joining a workgroup, please submit an interest form.
