ATD Network recognizes Central Piedmont as Leader College
Central Piedmont is now recognized as a leader college in the Achieving the Dream (ATD) Network.
Leader College certification metrics require colleges to provide four years of data and highlight a three-year upward trend on the two metrics selected in the All Students (Overall) group. Colleges must demonstrate, through disaggregation, the narrowing of an equity gap on at least one student characteristic on one or more metrics. Central Piedmont was successful in increasing completion and narrowing equity gaps in completion of gatekeeper English and gatekeeper Math classes.
A hallmark of the Achieving The Dream experience is to recognize exemplar institutions that have identified and implemented strategies that have been proven to be successful over time through the designation of Leader College status that indicates that every person who is affiliated with the institution is committed to ensuring student success for all of its students.
