DREAM 2017 is the annual conference of Achieving the Dream’s Network colleges, who join more than 1,900 of the nation’s thought-leaders, policy-makers, investors, and practitioners dedicated to helping more community college students succeed.
Attendees will hear how the nation’s top leaders are tackling the challenges of increasing student success, increasing capacity for data analysis, program evaluation, and student-centered, data-informed decision making.
