Rockey, Marci
Office of Community College Research and Leadership
Sauk Valley Community College (SVCC) has returned to the Pathways to Results (PTR) process to analyze and improve a new pathway each year for the last five years. They have become so invested in PTR that they have institutionalized its use into their approach to program review and continuous improvement, creating an institutional PTR team responsive to needs that arise on their campus. In 2014, faculty members partnered with student services and industry at SVCC to explore and enhance student success within the MultiCraft Technology pathway. This pathway includes several stackable credentials earned on the way to completing the associate in applied sciences. In addition, articulated transfer agreements exist with two state universities, allowing students to continue on the pathway to earn a four-year degree in Engineering Technology. This brief describes how Sauk Valley Community College integrated contextualized math and reading supports to improve outcomes for students in their manufacturing pathway.
