Achieving the Dream

Silver Spring, Maryland



The national reform network seeks to increase the academic success of community college students, particularly low-income and underrepresented students. This financial amendment will enable Achieving the Dream (ATD) to confer the 2018 Leah Meyer Austin Award on a community college that has made significant strides in improving student outcomes. Given annually since 2009, this influential award provides the winning college both modest financial resources to continue its efforts and, more importantly, public validation of its student-centered reforms.
