Meramec offers Pathways to Success program for Fall 2009

August 28, 2009

The Meramec campus will offer the new Pathways to Success program for Fall 2009 enrollment!  Classes begin September 14 and 15.

Pathways to Success is a three or four-semester series of non-credit courses, offered through Continuing Education, for individuals interested in developing and sharpening skills in preparation for entering the workforce, as well as engaging in personal growth. Courses draw from three essential areas of personal, academic and workplace-readiness development:

  • communication skills
  • life skills
  • career skills

At the end of the program, students engage in an internship at an area business. Upon program completion, students will be awarded a Certificate of Workplace Readiness.

Pathways to Success was created by two Meramec English faculty members, Juliet Scherer and Christine Carter, in response to the college's desire to offer something more individualized and profitable to students who may have or might struggle with satisfactorily completing college preparatory or developmental courses. 

“Pathways to Success is designed to maximize the potential of each student so he or she can enter the workforce as a productive and informed citizen, armed with the knowledge and skills necessary for success at work and in important areas of independent living,” said Scherer.
