Achieving Your Dream at Triton College  


    In May of 2009, Triton College was selected to join the national student success initiative – Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count. The initiative includes more than 200 institutions in 34 U.S. states and the District of Colombia, all recognized.

    Achieving the Dream is a non-governmentally funded multi-year national initiative to help more community college students succeed- particularly those students who traditionally face the most significant barriers to success including students of color and low-income.

Achieving the Dream helps community colleges develop and implement a student-centered model of institutional improvement. The initiative provides a framework for systematically and objectively reviewing college policies, programs and services with regard to their impact on student success. 

    Triton Intent with ATD: 
    • Use data to identify gaps in student achievement in order to improve equity in educational outcomes across racial/ethnic and income groups. Develop, implement and/or improve strategies for closing these gaps and ultimately help more students to earn post-secondary credentials.
    • Look at ways to improve student outcomes in essential areas that are important to a student’s academic progress.
    • Create an environment on campus that further fosters student success.
    • Place a great focus on aligning resources, reviewing institutional policies and continually analyzing data that will focus attention on student success.

    Benefits to Students: 
    • Greater support and resources to help students succeed. 
    • Enhancement of existing activities with strategies that will increase student success. 
    • Increased student engagement.
