(Racial Equity for Adult Credentials in Higher Ed)

Las Positas College Joins the REACH Collaborative

California Community Colleges (CCCs) in the Guided Pathways 2.0 project have an opportunity to complement and enhance existing Guided Pathways implementation efforts to benefit adult learners. CCC is one of six higher education systems nationwide to join the Racial Equity for Adult Credentials in Higher Ed (REACH) Collaborative, which aims to increase attainment of high-value non-degree credentials (NDCs) and associate degrees in community colleges by adult learners of color (age 25+), particularly Black and African American, Latinx, and Indigenous learners. Our goal is to create more functional degree pathways that incorporate employer-validated non-degree credentials and embed comprehensive support to increase likelihood of completion.
