A Message from Joan Tiller, Interim Vice President, Academic Affairs
Please join me in congratulating Assistant Vice President of Teaching and Learning Wendi Dew for being selected as one of Achieving the Dream’s inaugural guided pathways collaborative coaches.
Achieving the Dream has chosen 35 leaders in the fields of Academic Affairs and Student Affairs to offer on-site assistance to institutions to design, implement, assess and improve guided pathways. Pathways coaches will work with academic and student support teams at colleges across the nation to create the conditions necessary for transformational change; design and implement student success strategies that increase retention, progression and valuable credential completion for all students and reduce equity gaps among students; and build capacity, innovation and leadership at all levels of the institution to sustain and evolve this change.
This is an exciting opportunity for Wendi to engage with other institutions and leaders on broad student success efforts, as well as to participate in the unique professional development offered to the coaches and to connect what she learns from other institutions and models to our work at Valencia College.
