As Dallas College leaders lay the groundwork for continued educational excellence, the Board of Trustees will host a series of virtual, community town hall sessions beginning in August. These one-hour online sessions will help educate Dallas County employers and citizens about how the college is preparing students for living-wage jobs and adapting to employee needs in today’s ever-changing environment.
Addressing income disparity in the community and providing an educated workforce are two of the Board of Trustees’ Strategic Priorities. Each session will focus on a particular topic and feature local leaders, subject matter experts and Dallas College students.

For more than 50 years, Dallas College (formerly the Dallas County Community College District) has served citizens and employers in Dallas County through efforts to ensure vibrant economic growth for current and future generations. The desire to deliver a seamless experience across all locations was bolstered last month when the seven independently accredited colleges unified into one single institution — Dallas College.
