SJCC's Jaguar SPOTs are part of the California Community College Guided Pathways initiative, which aims to remove obstacles to student success.
It is a way to advance equity for our students of color, first generation students, students from low-income backgrounds, and adult students.
There are four pillars to Guided Pathways:
- Create clear curricular pathways to employment and further education.
- Help students choose and enter their pathway.
- Help students stay on their path.
- Ensure that learning is happening with intentional outcomes.
