Our collective efforts have changed the conversation among community colleges: from valuing student access to higher education to prizing both access and success – so that students finish what they start and attain credentials that help them secure a job with family sustaining wages.

We believe in the enormous potential of community colleges to contribute to individual student success, community well-being, and state and national economic competitiveness.

As community colleges are working toward student success, they are faced with local, state and Federal policies which challenge acceleration and completion strategies.

Achieving the Dream mobilizes greater support for community colleges and spotlights the importance of a comprehensive agenda for student success and the role of community colleges in meeting the nation’s workforce needs.
