Dr. Mike Flores, Chancellor of the Alamo Colleges District, has joined the Achieving the Dream (ATD) Board of Directors. His appointment became effective January 1.

Dr. Flores, the first Hispanic chancellor of the Alamo Colleges District, has served in the post since 2018. During his first year, the District and its five colleges were the only community college system in the nation to be awarded the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s highest presidential honor for performance excellence. The child of migrant farmworkers, Dr. Flores’s vision is eliminating poverty through education.

“I’m proud to join the Board of Achieving the Dream alongside peers who are equally passionate about student success,” Dr. Flores said. “The involvement of our district in Achieving the Dream and my years as an ATD coach have allowed me to be involved in national conversations and movements to propel Alamo Colleges District, the students we serve, and our partner institutions in ATD forward.” 

“The Alamo Colleges District provides individuals in our community access to a college credential, which provides a ticket to the American middle class. The best practices and principles we have adapted from Achieving the Dream have allowed us to expand our efforts to increase the economic and social mobility of our students and have yielded increases in student completion overall and in equity for our most vulnerable populations,” he added.
