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



Meeting on a semi-weekly basis, the Taskforce develops a campuswide 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 are identified by the Taskforce itself, by grant objectives (including Title III and BSI) and through ongoing planning retreats.
