Elmore to Present at Pathways Institute

TACC Event November 6-8


Trinity Valley Community College Vice President of Instruction Dr. Wendy Elmore and retired Texas A&M-Commerce Vice President of Student Access and Success will be presenters at the Texas Success Center’s Texas Pathways Institute #3 this week in San Antonio. The two will present “The Role of Faculty in Transfer and Applicability” during the three day institute.

The Institute’s objectives are to reinforce the case for pathways reforms and the central emphasis on equity and socio-economic mobility; encourage colleges to better align their programs with career-path jobs of economic importance to their region; help colleges better enable students to transfer seamlessly and easily to baccalaureate institutions with minimal loss of community college credits toward a degree in the student’s major field of study; strengthen student-facing online and print information to help them make more informed choices about their career and education pathways; identify and address organizational challenges involved in aligning pathways with transfer and employment; better align academic transfer and workforce programs to help transfer students build workforce skills and workforce students earn degrees, including bachelor’s and graduate degrees; produce draft action plans for continuing work toward full alignment of all academic and career pathways with transfer and employment with equity in mind and continue building an engaged learning network among Pathways Colleges.

The Texas Success Center was established at the Texas Association of Community Colleges (TACC) in 2013 through its 501(c)3 affiliate, the Texas Community College Education Initiative, to tighten the linkage between practice, research, and policy enabling Texas community colleges to benefit from national research and promising practices on how to accelerate degree completion.
