ATD uses ground-level and system-level strategies to accomplish big-picture outcomes, such as institutional change, policy change, public engagement
and knowledge development. Over one hundred and thirty community colleges in 24 states and the District of Columbia have participated in Achieving the Dream.
As part of this large national organization, Hawai'i has benefitted from the breadth of knowledge and expertise available to participants of Achieving the Dream. We have at our fingertips national data and research; best and promising practices, consultants and advisors; and many more resources to help us reach our goals of helping more students achieve success.
