VANCOUVER, Wash. – On Friday, March 24, the Clark College Business and Community Learning Series continues with a presentation on Guided Pathways, the educational model that Clark College is adopting to help boost student completion and success.

A team of faculty and administration from Pierce College in Puyallup will present on that college’s efforts to implement the Guided Pathways model, which was championed in the influential book, Redesigning America’s Community Colleges: A Clearer Path to Student Success.

This event, which is free and open to the public, will be held 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Gaiser Student Center. Lunch is not provided, but guests are invited to bring their own. Clark College is located at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, WA 98663. Driving directions and parking maps are available at
