The curriculum includes six 2.5-day Institutes (five in person and one virtual). Each college sends a team of eight people to each in-person Institute.
Every semester, each college team participates in two virtual office hours with subject matter experts.
Each college is invited to participate in two virtual consultancies per semester. These virtual sessions, led by the college’s rural pathways coach and involving multiple colleges, are opportunities to collectively address problems of practice with peers from other institutions.
NCII and its partners host three topical webinars per year. Participants can watch in real time and ask questions; NCII also posts the PPTs and audio recordings online.
Each college has one on-site visit from its rural pathways coach each year. During these visits, coaches provide professional development to the broader campus community, customize support to specific college needs, and/or generate insight on challenges and potential next steps.
