History of Build Your Path

Build Your Path was created on suggestions from high school counselors and outlines pathways for those with Built Environment career ambitions. The publication emphasizes pathways, which are neither linear nor mutually exclusive. In its fifth edition, the Build Your Path series has been in print since 2016 and is a hit with students, parents, educators, and guidance counselors alike.
