First cohort coming Fall 2023.
Sacramento City College has developed Caminos de la Ciudad, a project designed to create a seamless transition from Freshman Seminar to the second semester of college, while providing a continued pathway and support to students as they enroll in a major course and complete both English and math in their first year of college.
This grant will help the college build capacity for and implement the third and fourth pillars of Guided Pathways:
- Help students stay on their path
- Ensure that learning is happening with intentional outcomes
SCC’s overarching goal with this grant is to resume where its Guided Pathways project ended and to provide an additional clear pathway for students, particularly those who are Latinx and/or low-income, to succeed in their community college classes and on to transfer or meaningful work. The college’s focus on the next steps of Guided Pathways is grounded in the institutional goal to provide SCC students with a place to learn, grow, belong, and find and pursue their academic, career, and life paths. Caminos de la Ciudad will allow SCC to expand that commitment to ensure that students can find their path and remain on it successfully as they move toward graduation, transfer, and/or career achievement.
The project has five measurable objectives:
- Objective 1: By Sept. 30, 2027, increase the persistence (Fall to Spring) rate of first-time-in-college (FTIC) Hispanic/ Latino and/ or low-income students by 8 percentage points.
- Objective 2: By Sept. 30, 2027, increase the retention (Fall to Fall) rate of first-time-in-college (FTIC) Hispanic/ Latino and/ or low-income students by 5 percentage points.
- Objective 3: By Sept. 30, 2027, improve the transfer-ready number of first-time-in-college (FTIC) Hispanic/ Latino and/ or low-income students by 56 percent.
- Objective 4: By Sept. 30, 2027, increase the number of awards (degrees) earned by first-time-in-college (FTIC) Hispanic/ Latino and/ or low-income students by 72 percent.
- Objective 5: By Sept. 30, 2027, increase second-year course success rates of first-time-in- college (FTIC) Hispanic/Latino and/ or low-income students by 3 percentage points.
