Benefits provided to all ATD Network colleges with the purchase of foundational, program, and custom services.

Colleges in the ATD Network achieve and sustain transformational change at multiple levels, based on where they are in their student success work. They benefit from the collective learning of the national ATD Network of institutions and partners and from ATD’s 15 years of experience innovating and anticipating future needs and issues in the face of continual change. Network institutions and their leaders have the unique opportunity to learn from (and with) their peers through exclusive access to network events, summits, and convenings. Colleges in the ATD Network benefit from strategic, customized, sustained support during their participation in the network and have options to deepen their work through targeted coaching services.

“Achieving the Dream provided the cornerstone for change and helped us identify what our biggest challenges were and really encouraged us to embrace change at scale."
