Every Achieving the Dream Institution develops and implements research-based policies and practices based on quantitative and qualitative analyses of its institutional strengths, problem areas, and achievement gaps. The colleges are committed to assessing the effectiveness of their policies and practices, institutionalizing approaches that prove successful, and sharing their findings widely.
In 2010-11, Achieving the Dream Leader Colleges pioneered several promising policies and practices to help more students succeed. It is important to keep in mind that these interventions are a part of Achieving the Dream's larger student-centered model of institutional improvement, and any attempt to replicate a promising practice should be done in the context of Achieving the Dream's integrated framework.
