Effective Strategies for Engaging Faculty and Staff
Achieving the Dream
Community colleges are the pathways for millions of Americans to gain valuable education and to access career opportunities leading to family-sustaining wages. Faculty, student services staff, and administrators must share in the responsibility for student success if we are to meet national completion goals and reach even more students. During a three year initiative, 15 Achieving the Dream Leader Colleges embarked on an ambitious strategy to broaden faculty and staff engagement through the Walmart PRESS (Persistence, Retention, and Student Success) for Completion Grant. This document presents a summary of lessons the colleges learned through the faculty and staff engagement work.
