Lakeshore Technical College is committed to student success

In fall 2015, LTC joined Achieving the Dream, a national nonprofit dedicated to helping community college students succeed.

Achieving the Dream is focused on creating a “culture of evidence” on community college campuses in which data collection and analysis drive efforts to identify problems that prevent students from succeeding and develop programs to help them stay in school and receive a certificate or diploma.

As a member of Achieving the Dream, LTC has created a vision statement and is identifying strategies to:

  • Improve student success
  • Close achievement gaps
  • Increase retention, persistence, and completion rates


  • 2015-16 Year 1:  Data Collection
  • 2016-17 Year 2:  Implementation
  • 2017-18 Year 3:  Evaluation

LTC is the third college in Wisconsin to join Achieving the Dream

“Every student matters at Lakeshore Technical College and Achieving the Dream is helping us develop the resources and systems students need to achieve their goals. Our mission of enriching lives and strengthening the economy by preparing a workforce that skilled, diverse and flexible are a great fit with Achieving the Dream.”

–Dr. Michael Lanser, President, Lakeshore Technical College
