Report Seeks 'Roadmaps'
from Dateline (February 13, 2003)
A new California State University study is
advocating the development of academic “roadmaps” to
help students complete a baccalaureate degree.
The draft report recommends the development of 4-,
5- and 6-year plans to guide students in all degree programs.
“While we cannot control students' individual
decisions about how they juggle the relative priorities of family,
work and school, we can provide clear and accessible roadmaps to
help them navigate the path to graduation,” said Jacquelyn
Kegley, statewide Academic Senate chair who co-chaired the task
“Facilitating Student Success in Achieving the
Baccalaureate Degree” was presented to the trustees last month.
They will be asked to approve the final report at their March meeting.
The report urges campuses to develop projected class
schedules to ensure that required courses are available during specified
terms. It also calls for creation of specific checkpoints at which
students would be advised on their progress to degree.
