A Bolder Vision for Student Success

One that makes completion a progression metric rather than the end goal.

One that embodies a new access agenda that reaches deeper into our communities to open new pathways into and through our colleges for our most vulnerable learners.

One that moves from a focus on whole college transformation to one of whole community transformation.

One that moves teaching and learning and faculty leadership, engagement and respect into the center from the margins to the center of our redesign efforts.

One that authentically centers equity—especially racial equity—in your institutional redesign work.

Achieving the Dream works with hundreds of community colleges to help develop a bolder vision for student success...for all students.

Being a Network College Has Its Advantages

Colleges in the ATD Network achieve and sustain transformational change at multiple levels, based on where they are in their student success work. They benefit from the collective learning of the national ATD Network of institutions and partners as well as from ATD’s 15-plus years of experience innovating and anticipating future needs and issues in the face of continual change. Leaders of ATD Network institutions have unique opportunities to learn from—and with—their peers through exclusive access to network events, summits, and convenings. You benefit from strategic, customized, sustained support during their participation in the network and have options to deepen your work through targeted coaching services.  

Contact us today to talk about how you can leverage the power of the ATD Network.
