Eight Students Chosen As 2020 DREAM Scholars

Eight community college students from Achieving the Dream (ATD) Network colleges have been chosen as 2020 DREAM Scholars. The Scholars include one from a Tribal College and University and one from a Gateway to College program, which joined Achieving the Dream in 2019. The Scholars will participate in ATD’s 2020 DREAM Scholars program to enhance their leadership, critical thinking, and networking skills. The program culminates in a presentation by the DREAM Scholars to more than 2,000 community college leaders at ATD’s annual conference, DREAM, in National Harbor, Maryland from February 18-21, 2020.

DREAM Scholars are nominated by their institutions, submit applications that ask them to reflect on their college journeys, and undergo a rigorous selection process. During DREAM, the students meet with community college leaders, share their educational experiences, and attend sessions on improving student success, institutional governance, teaching and learning, administration, and more. Their DREAM experience includes individual presentations where Scholars share what they have learned during the week, while providing additional insight about Network colleges’ work to improve their students’ success and completion and close achievement gaps for historically underserved student populations.
