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.
CCC's ATD Core and Data Teams engaged in an intentional evaluation of data to identify areas for improvement as it relates to student success. From these efforts, team members set up an ATD Action Plan that included 3 priority goals designed to strengthen the college's capacity to equitably prepare students for today's careers. These goals include:
Priority Goal 1: Improve Accessibility to Data. Create a structured approach to data collection and data analysis for multi-level institutional decision-making.
Priority Goal 2: Improve early momentum metrics through the development of Program Maps for all degree and certificate programs. Completion of both English and Math within the first year will increase by 5%. Increase credit accumulation (12 hours the first semester and 15 hours the first year) by 2%. Decrease the percentage of students who earn 0 credit hours in their first semester by 2%.
Priority Goal 3: Evaluate student exposure to digital literacy and digital economy skills. Using the ATD Digital Literacy Matrix, identify how programs and/or classes address digital literacy as it relates to the digital economy.

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.
