Contact network@achievingthedream.org to discuss your institution attending

Achieving the Dream’s Kickoff Institute is designed to prepare 2021 cohort college teams to begin or intensify the process of transformative, institutional improvement. Attendees will be introduced to the Institutional Capacity Framework and Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT). College teams will also work with their ATD Coaches to begin planning for the integration and alignment of their student success work into a single cohesive effort using the Capacity Framework, and hear practical examples of how other ATD Network colleges have successfully built capacity in each of the seven core capacity areas. Following the Kickoff Institute, teams will have clear next steps for building out implementation plans with larger groups of their institution's stakeholders.

College Student Success Kickoff Experience

The College Student Success Kickoff Experience is offered each year to a select number of  prospective colleges considering Achieving the Dream’s National Reform Network to address their own student success and capacity needs. The College Student Success Kickoff Experience allows these prospective colleges to send teams of four to learn about ATD’s Institutional Capacity Framework and Assessment Tool, and how it creates the foundation for change necessary for building and strengthening a student-focused culture.
