Silver Spring, MD (October 10, 2013) – Achieving the Dream Board of Directors and staff launched the Achieving the Dream Interventions Showcase at an event hosted at its Silver Spring office yesterday, October 9, 2013.


The Achieving the Dream Interventions Showcase is a newly-created online, sortable database that contains detailed information on Achieving the Dream Colleges’ student success interventions that are being implemented across the nation. The Showcase represents nearly 500 interventions from more than 100 community colleges throughout 26 states.


It allows users to:


  • Learn from innovative strategies being implemented at other community colleges
  • Identify student success trends
  • Connect with peers to learn from one another and exchange ideas, challenges, and findings
  • Investigate specific interests and find resources

The Achieving the Dream Interventions Showcase provides the platform for users to easily identify community colleges that are implementing targeted strategies to address specific student success challenges.
