Personalizing Pathways: Helping Students Start, Stay, and Finish Strong on Their Education Journeys

Driven by vital goals to help more and more diverse students learn well and finish strong on their journeys through our colleges and universities, the field of education is embracing the pathways movement. Moreover, lessons learned from business, healthcare, and athletics and their advanced analytics initiatives are informing these initiatives. In this session, using examples from leading institutions nationally and internationally, we’ll unpack some of the emerging principles and encouraging outcomes around (1) building, (2) personalizing, and (3) helping students navigate pathways. We’ll also explore ways to strategically engage students along the way with the best of precision outreach, nudging, and support.
