Why It Works.

PATHWAYS is affordable and accessible. We are respectful of persons with diverse backgrounds. Participants are not bound by geography and have a flexible time schedule over the course of each week. The weekly readings and the facilitated accompanying online forum offer a practical, open-minded education and create a learner-centered environment where participants can bring their own questions and wisdom. Asynchronous education allows person with a computer and the internet to be in weekly forums over the course of six weeks in regular courses, four weeks in exploration courses and 12 weeks for UCC history and polity courses.
