Achieving the Dream believes its mission is urgent and that the stakes for success have never been higher. The future of our country requires that we strengthen our communities by relentlessly addressing systemic inequities within higher education to increase social and economic mobility for all students and families. We’re leading America’s largest network of community colleges working to become strong engines of student and community growth.
