NC State Doctoral Students to Attend DREAM as DREAM Fellows

The DREAM Fellows program, now in its third year, is a partnership that ATD has built with the Community College Leadership doctoral program at North Carolina State University. This fellowship brings a select group of graduate students, all mid-career professionals employed at community colleges, to DREAM in the interest of exploring firsthand the evolving approaches to improving student success and leadership challenges at community colleges nationwide. In a new offering for 2020, Fellows will have structured time to interface with the DREAM Scholars, a select group of undergraduate students, providing a unique opportunity for these students at different ends of their postsecondary journeys to connect and discuss the sessions they are attending.

Each Fellow attends a selected schedule of presentations based upon a given theme, such as Pathways pillar. Upon attending presentations, Fellows provide ATD with in-depth feedback about the extent to which relevant challenges, issues, and solutions were discussed, as well as an evaluation on session quality and delivery beyond that of standard attendee surveys. Feedback is provided in both quantitative and qualitative form throughout DREAM; NC State also helps compile a master Executive Summary on behalf of all Fellows.
