  • Questions About Guided Pathways VI – The Final (?) Chapter…

    At long last, as those in the Northeast finally emerge from a long, tough winter and virtually no spring, we end a journey we started back in January as we started exploring the questions that I and the other national assistance providers on Completion by Design hear most commonly in our travels around the country.  It’s been quite a ride as we moved through these, and I’ve been integrating the questions and the responses I’ve provided in this series into presentations and workshops around...
