Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count

November 2005−April 2013

This national nonprofit, dedicated to helping more community college students succeed, supports a network of 160 educational institutions in 30 states and emphasizes the use of data to inform change. In collaboration with MDRC, CCRC is evaluating the “culture of evidence” model of institutional improvement that is being tested by the organization’s participating colleges. CCRC is leading the evaluation of the Washington State Achieving the Dream Colleges. CCRC and MDRC are conducting a survey in two waves about the use of data for improving student outcomes by faculty, administrators, and student services staff at these institutions.

This project is funded by Lumina Foundation, with additional funding from College Spark Washington.
