2018 New ATD Leader College Application

A hallmark of the ATD experience is to recognize exemplar institutions that have identified and implemented strategies that have been proven to be successful over time. We do this through the designation of Leader College status that indicates that every person who is affiliated with the institution is committed to ensuring student success for all of its students.

Achieving the Dream is excited to open the process for this year’s New Leader College Application period! We invite colleges to apply for Leader College designation based on the following eligibility criteria:

  • Completion of at least three years of active participation in ATD
  • Active ATD participation in current year, including payment of 2018-2019 invoice
  • Good standing with accrediting agency (not on warning or probation)

If you believe that your college is eligible, please review the 2018 New Leader College application with detailed instructions and the Leader College application worksheet in the file below.

Applications are due by October 12, 2018.

To assist you in this process, on Wednesday, August 8, ATD hosted a webinar on the 2018 new Leader College Application process to answer any questions and to provide additional guidance as necessary. The accompanying Power Point presentation may be downloaded here.
