Helping More Community College Students Succeed
igkbet娱乐官网 is a national initiative to help more community college students — particularly low-income students and students of color — succeed. The initiative works on multiple fronts — including efforts on campuses and in research, public engagement and public policy — and emphasizes the use of data to drive change.
Strategies identified to help more students continue their studies and earn certificates and degrees include:
- Helping students better prepare for college-level work by focusing on precollege (remedial/developmental) education.
- Engaging students in the classroom through new instructional techniques that include team learning and combined subjects to make learning more relevant to students’ lives.
- Using student success courses to teach skills such as time management and effective study skills.
Funding for Achieving the Dream
continues to fund this initiative in Washington state.
A collaboration of foundations supports Achieving the Dream nationally, including the Lumina Foundation for Education, Education Assistance Foundation, Heinz Endowments, Houston Endowment Inc., Knowledge Works Foundation, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.
