R2S Pathways

R2S PATHWAYS, a retention model program, creates educational communities that provide intensive support and services guiding students on their pathway to completion, career, and/or transition to college. R2S PATHWAYS focuses on the student’s journey and breaking down barriers to completion by empowering students to drive their success and possibilities for achieving self-sufficiency and reaching their education and career goals.

Because SDCE cares about students’ health and safety, currently all R2S PATHWAYS services are provided remotely or online. For more information, please email CER2SPATHWAYS@sdccd.edu.
