CERRO COSO RECEIVES NATIONAL AWARD
Congratulations are in order for Cerro Coso Community College as it is one of five colleges to receive the title of being a “Leader College” designation by “Achieving the Dream” (ATD), a national honor awarded to institutions in the ATD National Network that have shown three years of steady improvement in two outcomes that measure student success, such as Math and English.
Leader Colleges are eligible to compete for all grant-funded learning initiatives and are encouraged to provide leadership and support to other colleges in the ATD Network. Cerro Coso, along with the other four nationally recognized colleges, will retain their “Leader” status for three years.
Achieving The Dream, Inc. is a national non-profit that is dedicated to helping more community college students, particularly low-income students, stay in school and earn a college certificate or degree.
