DREAM 2019 - Achieving the Dream

Long Beach Convention Center
Long Beach, CA
February 19-22, 2019

Special 15th Achieving the Dream Convening in 2019

For 15 years, Achieving the Dream has been working with colleges across the country to redesign the student experience to increase credential attainment and close opportunity gaps. In February 2019, ATD will kick-off its 15th anniversary year at the annual DREAM convening, in Long Beach, CA, February 19-22.

DREAM is Achieving the Dream’s annual convening, bringing together more than 2,000 influential policy-makers, investors, thought leaders, and practitioners from colleges throughout the country to talk about emerging strategies for critical issues such as equity, increasing student success, increasing capacity for data analysis, program evaluation, and student-centered, data-informed decision- making. DREAM is open to colleges and universities inside and outside of the Achieving the Dream Network.

Through plenaries, spotlight sessions, and hundreds of concurrent hands-on workshop and sessions, participants have opportunities to share their own work and to meet informally with colleagues and speakers in receptions and other special events. The event is uniquely designed to provide multiple opportunities for individuals and teams from community colleges and four-year institutions to be active participants and to bring new learning, fresh ideas, and renewed energy back to their campuses.

The Call for Proposals will be published in mid August.
