In this weeks media segment, an Achieving the Dream (ATD) coach, core team leader, and campus chair discuss what makes ATD so effective. If you were in a position to grant funds to colleges to implement a student success initiative, what would you be looking for in their grant applications? What would you want to know about their plans to ensure that your money would be well spent?
Post your criteria for granting funds based on the observations of this weeks interviewees. Discuss with your colleagues how you would evaluate a programs prospects for success? What are the essential elements that you would look for?
