When your institution becomes part of the Achieving the Dream Network, you immediately begin a process of transformation in the company of peer institutions who share their successes and challenges in their work to improve their student success work. Starting with the application process through the Kickoff Institute that begins your Achieving the Dream work, we develop deep relationships with our Network colleges and learn about your goals, challenges, and culture. Next, we match your college with two coaches.  ATD coaches serve as trusted advisors. They work hard to understand your needs and provide valuable advice about tested practices and solutions—both within and beyond ATD—that can help you advance student success.

Our new, revised customized model offers colleges a diverse suite of unique supports, programs, and resources that specifically match their student success needs.

Applications are now available for the 2019 Cohort, and we invite you to become part of our growing national network of colleges that are committed to improving student success for their students.
