Guided Pathways at Cabrillo College

What is Guided Pathways?

Guided Pathways provides students with clearer roadmaps to achieving their dreams, from the moment they decide to come to the college to the time they earn a certificate, degree or transfer.

Guided Pathways is equity-driven and student centered, so that we can better help all of our students along all of the stages of their educational journey.

"Guided Pathways honors and values our students and their career and educational aspirations.”

--Cabrillo College President, Matt Wetstein

Olga Díaz

Program Coordinator Watsonville Center

"On-boarding processes are loaded with information for incoming students that can be a bit overwhelming at times. One of my favorite roles at the Watsonville Center is to guide students through the various support services and resources available to them throughout their educational journey, and helping them ease the way through these on-boarding processes. Keeping my office door open for any questions allows me to provide a welcoming experience for students and a place for them to feel supported".

Kendall Sooter

Communication Studies Faculty


"I strive to include Guided Pathways principles both inside the classroom and throughout the Cabrillo experience. I have included assignments in class that encourage students to reflect on their success, their own onboarding process, and what they want the Cabrillo community to look like. I help students find their passions and share their visions to improve the Cabrillo College experience for all of our students."

Guided Pathways Student Assistants


The Guided Pathways office has hired and trained eight Student Assistants. They were trained on communication techniques, equity best practices, and the Guided Pathways framework. They are participating on implementation teams, working on Guided Pathways projects, gathering feedback from additional students across the College, and ensuring the student voice is included in all GP decision-making.
