Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC)

Community College of Allegheny County

Achieving the Dream

CCAC was honored along with six other Pennsylvania community colleges by being selected to join Achieving the Dream in 2006. Achieving the Dream is a national initiative to help more community college students succeed, particularly low income students and students of color. There are more than two-hundred Achieving the Dream institutions across the country.

Being an Achieving the Dream College augments our existing commitments to provide learners with opportunities, including programs and services that enable success in academic, career, personal and civic pursuits; and to ensure the success of learners through ongoing assessment of learning outcomes and overall institutional effectiveness.

We are privileged to have two esteemed colleagues serving as our coaches in this initiative:

  • Mary Fifield, President, Bunker Hill Community College
  • Vasti Torres, Dean and Professor, College of Education, University of South Florida
