DARE Taskforce Mission Statement


Developmental Education at De Anza College equitably allows
students of every background to take ownership of their education and to succeed in their educational goals by providing the necessary integrated resources, services, and learning environment.


DARE Taskforce Charge

The Taskforce will develop a campus-wide plan to streamline and structure the flow of students from the point of entry, through student support and academic courses, to their final objectives.

Future objectives will be identified by the Taskforce itself, by Basic Skills Initiative (BSI) grant objectives. Click here for BSI overview
From Mini-Grants to Jumpstart for students...
