Chronicle of Higher Education Mentions Carleton's New Pathways Program

October 1, 2013

The Oct. 1 edition of the Chronicle of Higher Education (subscription required) made a note of Carleton's new "Pathways" program in its article entitled "Career Centers Stretch to Fill New Roles." The Chronicle notes that Pathways was started as a result of discussions during the recently-completed strategic planning process, listing  as one of its priorities this goal: "Prepare students more robustly for fulfilling post-graduation lives and careers." The Chronicle writes "Carleton believes in its approach to a liberal-arts education, says President Steven G. Poskanzer, its president. Still, he says, "we are not keeping faith with students and families if they graduate from Carleton and then spend the next three or four years floundering." Pathways is an outcome of that planning to more intentionally shape the College's advising program, has started a new Web site to provide information on popular career fields like health and wellness and arts and communication, and is doing more to tie academics and outside activities together."
