Abstract: How do urban adult education providers design and implement career pathways (CP)? This presentation highlights findings from in-depth, qualitative case studies of six CP programs offered by community colleges, CBOs, and a school district in Chicago, Houston, and Miami. Key features of CP programs are described and compared, including their goals, instructional components, instructor expertise, staffing, support services, and access for lower-level students, among others. Salient factors that contribute to student success are also discussed, including wraparound supports, partnerships, bridge classes, and more.
