Statement from Achieving the Dream President on Release of the New MDRC Report

Today our partner, MDRC, released the report, Moving Forward with Institutional Change: Lessons from the First Round of Achieving the Dream Community Colleges. The report focuses on the 26 community colleges that were first to join the Achieving the Dream initiative, and examines their progress over the initial five years of participation, from 2004 to 2009.  

We want to thank MDRC, our founding investor Lumina Foundation, and the courageous colleges that stepped forward to join ATD. These Round One colleges were truly pioneers. They engaged in bold experiments, expanded their capacity to collect and analyze data, and made fundamental changes to enable more students to succeed. And they began this work at a time when two-year college enrollment was growing rapidly and budgets were declining.
