Mapping Pathways for Student Success and Equity
The accountability movements of our time and flatline funding fueled by budget cuts have placed a variety of challenges on the doorstep of higher education institutions. In addition to limited resources, some institutions now face declining enrollments, increasing operation costs and greater competition for external funding. As we struggle to redefine priorities and establish new student-centered strategies to address completion, retention and success rates, it is clear that institutions have to do a better job of integrating planning and proposed solutions. Process mapping helps identify critical needs and priorities that address common goals for superior student pathways and success.
