The colleges affiliated with the Coast Community College District (CCCD) in Southern California collaborate on delivering career pathways in several industry sectors. Their successful operation largely depends upon the individuals serving in the role of Pathway Director. Pathway Directors build partnerships with employers, provide outreach to schools and communities, and coordinate career related services to students. The profile of a Pathway Director describes these responsibilities in greater detail and identifies the skills, knowledge and behaviors needed to be effective in the job. The profile can be used by other colleges as a model for designing similar liaison positions for their career pathways.
