“Our commitment to our students at West is as strong as ever. We are clear that we must meet students where they are in their academic preparation and readiness for the rigors of a collegiate learning environment and work with them from that point forward. With Achieving the Dream we have learned to examine our knowledge of our students’ experiences and pursue good information. ‘How do we know that?’ is the most important question we have learned to ask before developing programs and policies to improve student development.”
