Welcome to Orlando

WELCOME to a special 20th anniversary convening: DREAM 2024

Celebrating 20 Years of Progress — 20 Years of DREAM

DREAM 2024 will celebrate the two decades of Achieving the Dream’s collective commitment to students and equity, which has helped transform higher education institutions throughout the nation into drivers of access, momentum, mobility, and community vibrancy. On our 20th anniversary, we’re proud to stand exactly where we belong: where urgent attention to access, retention, and credentialing of minoritized and economically marginalized students is most needed.

As we gather in Orlando to choose transformation over tradition, curiosity over inaction, and innovation over status quo, we would like to respectfully acknowledge that DREAM 2024 will take place on lands and territories of the Ais, Apalachee, Calusa, Timucua, and Tocobago tribes as well as the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida.

Once your workday is done, fill your itinerary with brand-new wonders, unexpected adventures, luxurious relaxation and top-notch options for every occasion.

Crave thrills? Discover fresh reasons to visit Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld® Orlando, not to mention unique attractions throughout our convention district.
