With Achieving the Dream, college leaders intend to structure more formal, data-informed approaches to planning and decision making. The college will
- Identify items that are crucial to student success
- Enhance or develop appropriate programs
- Align resources for student success
- Track progress toward student success goals
Student success and closing achievement gaps were the focus of attention during the planning period for Achieving the Dream. Data showed students were not succeeding in both developmental and gatekeeper courses. Along with another major initiative, Unlock Your Future, AtD will be able to provide students with the academic support they need for a successful college experience.
