Iḷisaġvik College Joins Achieving the Dream to Pursue Transformative Change, Improve Student Success

Thu, 07/20/2017 - 13:17

Silver Spring, MD (June 28, 2016) – Iḷisaġvik College today announced it has joined Achieving the Dream (ATD), a network of more than 220 colleges in 39 states dedicated to improving student success.  As a Network institution, Iḷisaġvik College will innovate to implement, align, and scale cutting edge reforms, work with ATD coaches to build institutional capacity and connect with peers to foster learning and share information.

 

“Iḷisaġvik College appreciates the opportunity to partner with Achieving the Dream as this will strengthen student success initiatives throughout the organization.  By supporting our students and increasing student success, we are able to build and support a trained workforce through mentoring, training, and education.” – Dr. Pearl Kiyawn Brower, President, Ilisagvik College

“The strength of local and regional economies, our ability to rebuild the middle class, and the possibility that a new generation will achieve their goals depends on community colleges,” said Dr. Karen A. Stout, president and CEO of Achieving the Dream. “Colleges that join the ATD Network show an exceptional commitment to becoming the kind of institution that will lead the nation into the future.”

 

ATD offers a capacity-building framework and companion self-assessment that allow colleges to pinpoint strengths and areas for improvement across seven institutional capacities in areas such as leadership and vision, teaching and learning, and data and technology.  With the capacity framework as a guide, ATD’s approach integrates and aligns existing college success efforts and offers valuable support in preparing for accreditation, fostering conversation about goals, and making bold, holistic institution-wide changes because initiatives that don’t reach most of a college’s student body have not shown strong results.

 

A team from Iḷisaġvik College and teams from the other colleges now joining ATD met in April and June to prepare to launch their ATD work, which will initially focus on college success as well as a Paid Internship Program.

ATD Network colleges report data using metrics that answer critical questions about who attends college, who succeeds in and after college and how college is financed. To advance goals of social mobility and equity, the metrics provide information on how low income and other underserved students fare. These metrics are categorized into performance metrics, efficiency metrics and equity metrics at points during the student experience from access through post-college outcomes.

 

As colleges in the new cohort progress, they may apply to participate in initiatives supported by philanthropic funding and managed by ATD. These initiatives help incubate new ideas that help colleges refine practices based on evidence of what works and allow ATD to disseminate knowledge to the broader network and the field.  New initiatives address the challenge of engaging adjunct faculty more deeply as key members of colleges’ workforces and implementing degree programs using only open educational resources (OER).

Iḷisaġvik College recognizes Arctic Slope Regional Corporation’s generosity in contributing over $1 million towards post secondary education on the North Slope.

Thu, 07/06/2017 - 17:54


(June 2nd, 2017 Utqiaġvik, Alaska) ⎻ Iḷisaġvik College President Dr. Pearl Brower is pleased to acknowledge the generosity of the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) in contributing over $1 million to the college to help further the efforts of post-secondary education on the North Slope.
By exemplifying the Iñupiat value of Aviktuagqatigiigñiq (sharing), ASRC has enhanced Iḷisaġvik’s efforts to provide academic, vocational, and technical education to all North Slope residents. ASRC President and CEO Rex A. Rock Sr. stated, “At ASRC, we are proud to support Iḷisaġvik College, which for decades has helped to produce the next generation of leaders both inside and outside of our region. We have seen firsthand the difference it continues to make in the lives of our people. As the only tribal college in Alaska, I congratulate Iḷisaġvik for its success and look forward to our continued partnership.”
Referring to ASRC’s generous donations, Iḷisaġvik President Pearl Brower stated, “On behalf of our students, employees, faculty and Board of Trustees, quyanaqpak to ASRC. Without their help, we would not be able to reach as many students as we do now. The students we educate bring knowledge and skills home that help to better life for their villages, families and the larger North Slope community. There is not a village on the North Slope that hasn’t been touched by ASRC’s generosity towards our goals. ASRC has truly been our partner in education.”
