Pathways to Graduation program


Pathways to Graduation logo



The Pathways to Graduation program supports students in the Department of Child and Family Studies and students who are interested in the major.  Pathways is a high impact educational practice that provides entering and continuing students with individual peer mentoring services, a menu of academic and professional development workshops (designed to enhance academic skills and disciplinary knowledge), and community building experiences.  

The Pathways program assists students in making the transition to CSULA.  The program is designed to strengthen abilities to excel and move effectively towards graduation.  

These efforts are supported by: 
•    providing knowledge/information about University policies,  procedures and campus resources; 
•    promoting engagement with the Department and University; and 
•    offering academic, personal and social support services.


Program participants must commit to attending at least 3 meetings per quarter with the peer mentor and attend least 3 workshops per quarter and to developing an academic plan. Peer mentors are trained and supervised by the Department Chair and Program Coordinators.
