In February 2021, Clovis Community College joined Achieving the Dream as part of their Building Resiliency in Rural Communities Initiative designed strengthen capacity to equitably prepare students for today’s careers.
CCC’s Achieving the Dream Student Success Vision Statement
Clovis Community College is committed to providing accessible, equitable, and inclusive educational opportunities for all students in our global community. In partnership with Achieving the Dream, CCC is dedicated to identifying and providing both academic and career specific programs designed to equip students with skills necessary for the digital workforce and to obtain high-demand jobs to strengthen our community’s economic future.
Our Core and Data teams have been hard at work reviewing our student data, which will drive some of our student success focus over the next several years.
Achieving the Dream Update
In October 2021 CCC launched the Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT), which is an online self-assessment designed to help CCC assess our strengths and areas for improvement in the seven key dimensions shown in this framework. We had 135 responses with 80% of our full-time faculty and staff completing the survey, showing a strong CCC committment to the ATD efforts. The next step is unpacking the data and developing an action plan. We will be hosting two Capacity Café sessions that will help us analyze and learn from our survey results and work toward an action plan for improved student success initiatives. Stakeholder input is very important for that process as well! For more information contact Dr. Robin Kuykendall at email@example.com.

Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) in Action
Changing campus culture and improving student outcomes is a challenging task that requires self-reflection, critical thinking and feedback, and coordinated action across the institution. ICAT is a tool that supports this work. Colleges that have completed the ICAT are leveraging the results to guide strategic planning, prepare for accreditation, launch pathways, implement high impact practices, facilitate discussions across the college, and drive action.
