Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count

Commitment by

Lumina Foundation For Education, Inc

In 2009, the Lumina Foundation for Education committed to drastically scale the 'Achieving the Dream (ATD): Community Colleges Count' initiative to help community colleges make the institutional changes required to dramatically increase the number of students who succeed in reaching their goals, with a particular focus on low-income students, and students of color. Through this commitment, the Lumina Foundation will establish ATD as a new non-profit organization to carry forward the work of the initiative.
