Alamo Colleges to be part of inaugural Achieving the Dream Community Vibrancy cohort
April 5, 2023
The Alamo Colleges District is proud to announce it has been selected to be part of the inaugural Achieving the Dream Community Vibrancy cohort. The cohort - made up of 17 network colleges - will test new tools and training materials intended to help colleges address inequities on their campus and in their communities.
These tools and materials will attempt to provide data to help colleges assess market potential amongst opportunity populations, track the right institutional metrics and monitor both workforce outcomes and community vibrancy metrics. The project will last approximately one year and culminate in a sharing event at DREAM 2024, Achieving the Dream’s conference.
Projected results include:
- Enhanced understanding about the importance of workforce outcomes and economic/social mobility.
- Enhanced knowledge about the impact and importance for creating equitable and economically vibrant communities.
- Increased use of next generation metrics to inform planning and strategic action.
- A suite of useful tools and resources for all ATD Network colleges (which are carefully vetted via this project).
The cohort is being made possible by generous support from Ascendium Education Group and Crimsonbridge Foundation.
