In 2012, institutions in both the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and the University System of Georgia (USG) submitted plans to achieve the ambitious goal of adding more than 250,000 postsecondary graduates to Georgia's workforce by 2020. The Pathways Program is aligned with the goals of Complete College America and Governor Nathan Deal's Complete College Georgia Initiative.
