Guided Pathways

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: 

  1. Create clear curricular pathways to employment and further education. 
  2. Help students choose and enter their pathway. 
  3. Help students stay on their path. 
  4. Ensure that learning is happening with intentional outcomes.
