CVTC selected to rural-serving cohort of Achieving the Dream

Chippewa Valley Technical College has been selected by Achieving the Dream (ATD), a national, leading higher education reform network of more than 300 community colleges across the country, to be part of its second Accelerating Equitable Outcomes initiative.

As one of six Accelerating Equitable Outcomes colleges in this cohort, CVTC will join the ATD Network of more than 300 community colleges nationwide. College leaders will actively engage in the cohort as a community of practice, sharing their strategies and learning as they seek to serve rural communities in innovative, evidence-based ways.

The cohort brings these colleges together with ATD coaches and subject matter experts in a three-year engagement to focus on deepening their analyses of data to better understand their students’ needs, increasing institutional capacity, deploying dynamic student supports for both inside and outside the classroom, and developing an action plan to continue and sustain their student success work.

“Chippewa Valley Technical College is proud to join ATD in the remarkable journey to make success possible for all students,” said Sunem Beaton-Garcia, CVTC President. “We're committed to examining the data to eliminate barriers and empowering all to contribute and strengthen their communities through our collaborative efforts.”

CVTC, along with fellow cohort colleges and eight other institutions new to the ATD Network, will convene for ATD’s Kickoff Institute, an annual event to welcome incoming Network colleges, which will be from June 12 to 14 in New Orleans.

The Kickoff will set the stage for the colleges’ partnerships with ATD and introduce them to the organization’s Institutional Capacity Framework, a comprehensive assessment built on essential capacities that help colleges develop a student-centered culture and enhance student success.
