Title:Engaging adjunct and full-time faculty in student success innovation
Organization:Achieving the Dream
Short Description:This publication is the first in a series of practical guides to address the challenges involved in community college reform and to ensure that every Achieving the Dream institution has the tools necessary to move the needle on student success and completion.
Annotation:A recent interim report by MDRC and the Community College Research Center allowed Achieving the Dream (ATD) the opportunity to reflect on aspects of their work that need deeper thinking and greater focus. The report, called “Turning the Tide: Five Years of Achieving the Dream in Community Colleges,” identified some vexing challenges in community college reform and concluded with recommendations for next steps. ATD welcomes these important recommendations, and this publication is the first in a series of practical guides to address the challenges and ensure that every ATD institution has the tools necessary to move the needle on student success and completion.
