ATD In The Field & In the News

The Achieving the Dream team is in the field this week on campus site visits and participating in summits, conferences, workshops, and meetings across the country. Keep up with us on Twitter @achievethedream.


ATD Kickoff Institute 

Achieving the Dream’s Kickoff Institute is designed to prepare 2019 cohort college teams to begin or intensify the process of transformative, institutional improvement. Teams from 17 colleges  will be introduced to the Institutional Capacity Framework and Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT). College teams will also work with their Leadership and Data 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.
