VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Westchester Community College has joined fifteen community colleges across the nation in the Achieving the Dream Reform Network, a program focused on developing methods to increase student success in the classroom and beyond.

To become an 'Achieving the Dream' college, applicants must demonstrate an institution-wide commitment to spend at least three years working to implement reforms designed to improve student success and completion rates on their campuses.

“Our new affiliation with Achieving the Dream, Inc. will give our institution a wonderful opportunity to build upon existing student success efforts. As a member of this network, our staff and administrators will be empowered to work together with the Achieving the Dream team on increasing our student engagement, learning, and completion outcomes,” says Dr. Belinda S. Miles, President, Westchester Community College.

Additionally, Dream schools will benefit from Achieving the Dream’s agreement with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) in which colleges’ data on successful outcomes will be extracted from already submitted student data. The change responds to requests by Achieving the Dream Institutions for a more streamlined data reporting structure.

“We are delighted to welcome the 2015 class of colleges into the Achieving the Dream National Reform Network and congratulate them for taking this next step in operationalizing their commitment to improving student outcomes,” says Achieving the Dream Vice President for Community College Relations Cindy Lenhart.
