The Transformative Change Initiative (TCI) is dedicated to assisting community colleges to scale-up innovations that improve student outcomes and program, organization, and system performance. TCI defines transformative change as follows: Raising the individual, organizational, and system performance of community colleges to unprecedented levels without sacrificing their historic commitment to access and equity. TCI is funded by Lumina Foundation, the Joyce Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Achieving the Dream is also a critical partner in this initiative.
This brochure provides an overview of the Transformative Change Initiative, including TCI opportunities and resources and the guiding principles that frame the scaling of transformative change. Additionally, TCI has an 28-page booklet that provides an overview of the guiding principles that frame the scaling of transformative change.
TCI endorses the use of guiding principles that support the scaling of transformative change. These principles are not intended to dictate action, but rather enable informed decision making about the innovation and reform. They reflect theory about scaling, input of community college educators, and partners who are implementing reforms.
