CMT Empowering Education Community College Initiative

Achieving the Dream joins Country Music Television (CMT) and pilot partner, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), in a Commitment to Action (CTA) made at the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative-America. This Commitment aims to strengthen America’s rural workforce in some of the most economically-depressed areas by increasing the number of residents with postsecondary degrees and credentials. Achieving the Dream joins CMT in an effort to support community colleges in their local mobilization efforts, using their extensive network of partner colleges.

In the pilot year (June 2014—June 2015), CMT partnered with a cohort of 15 community colleges to capture student success stories, support local recruitment and promotional events and create customized mobilization strategies to foster local economic development based on each school’s immediate needs. The first cohort included two Achieving the Dream colleges: Community College of Beaver County (PA) and Greenville Community Technical College (SC). Achieving the Dream will provide guidance and insight to CMT as it invites additional community colleges into the second and third cohorts of the CMT CTA which will expand to include more community colleges within the Achieving the Dream Network.
