Public Agenda

Guided Pathways to Student Success

Perspectives from Indiana College Students and Advisors


Indiana’s higher education attainment rates are lagging behind national averages at a time when postsecondary credentials are necessary for success. To address this problem, Public Agenda held 11 focus groups with current students, students who had dropped out, professional advisers and faculty advisers and also reviewed past studies on how students progress from enrollment to degree attainment or transfer – what we refer to here as student pathways. Our work supports the Indiana Commission for Higher Education's (ICHE) efforts to address this problem.
