Prioritizing Adult Community College Enrollment (PACCE)

Achieving the Dream (ATD) and the Lumina Foundation are collaborating on a new project focused on increasing community college enrollments and re-enrollments of adult learners, aged 25+.

The Prioritizing Adult Community College Enrollment (PACCE) initiative is designed to identify and scale promising strategies for increasing the enrollment of adult students — particularly Black, Latino, and Native American students — in high-quality credit and/or non-credit programs. To support this work, ATD and partner organizations will provide technical assistance to the selected institutions in behavioral design and sustainability of enrollment efforts. Additionally, each institution will have the opportunity to receive additional technical assistance services tailored to their unique needs to achieve their project goals.

This project will run from October 2021 through May 2023 when all project activities will end and the enrollment strategies should be fully scaled at participating colleges.
