What is Achieving the Dream?
For more than a decade, Achieving the Dream has served as a catalyst supporting community colleges to bolster student success. They guide colleges committed to improving student outcomes through an institutional change process designed to enable all students to earn certificates and degrees, improve their economic prospects and support their local communities.
Their longstanding emphasis on building data capacity and encouraging leadership and innovation has shaped the national conversation on student success. Their focus on access and completion for low-income students and students of color is now a focus of every community college in the nation.
Vision: A nation in which community colleges are highly valued for preserving access and
ensuring that their students, especially low-income students and students of color,
achieve their goals for academic success, personal growth, and economic opportunity.
Mission: To lead and support a national network of community colleges to achieve sustainable institutional transformation through sharing knowledge, innovative solutions and effective practices and policies leading to improved outcomes for all students.
Goal: To help all students-particularly the most underserved, realize substantial value from their post-secondary experience and their earned credentials, thereby strengthening their communities.
