Achieving the Dream Initiative

Achieving the Dream logo

Along with six other Pennsylvania community colleges, CCAC was honored  to be selected to join Achieving the Dream in 2006. Achieving the Dream is a national initiative to help more community college students succeed, particularly low-income students and students of color. There are more than three hundred Achieving the Dream institutions across the country.

Being an Achieving the Dream college augments our existing commitments to provide learners with opportunities—including programs and services that enable success in academic, career, personal and civic pursuits—and to ensure the success of learners through ongoing assessment of learning outcomes and overall institutional effectiveness.

We are privileged to have two esteemed colleagues serving as our coaches in this initiative:

  • Mary Fifield, President, Bunker Hill Community College
  • Ronald Head, Professor & Program Director, Doctor of Management in Community College Policy & Administration, University of Maryland University College
