Guided Pathways Advisory Council

The Guided Pathways Advisory Council (GPAC) provides oversight and direction for the implementation of Guided Pathways in the Washington community and technical college system. Meeting quarterly, this group reviews the status of Guided Pathways implementation, pressing issues, and new opportunities for collaboration and support in this work. The Advisory Council also developed the Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles that direct the implementation work.


A system that advances racial, social, and economic justice by achieving equitable student aspiration, access, economic progress, and educational and career attainment.


The Washington Student Success Center works to create an equitable system that prepares all learners to engage in a diverse society and workforce, achieve economic mobility through educational attainment and contribute to a socially just society.

Guiding Principles

  1. Guided Pathways requires urgent, radical, equity-minded, transformational organization change.
  2. Guided Pathways requires a culturally responsive commitment to racial and social equity by dismantling systemic policies and practices that perpetuate inequity.
  3. It is essential to fully engage the voices of students, faculty, staff, and community members in adaptive problem focused inquiry processes to lead to meaningful action and sustained systemic change.
  4. Guided Pathways requires intentional collaborative learning through professional development, partnerships, and resource development.
  5. Guided Pathways requires a focus on learning and outcomes aligned with community values and industry needs.
