The Campaign for Excellence
Since 1965, the Dallas County Community College District and its seven colleges have transformed the lives of approximately 2 million students. With Dallas County accounting for about 15 percent of the Texas workforce, it’s easy to see why our colleges play a major role in the economic vitality of both Dallas County and Texas.
In spite of our success and growth, we continue to face the challenges of dwindling public funds at the state level. At the same time, we stand firm on our commitment to give students an exceptional learning experience marked by quality instruction, cutting-edge technology, world-class facilities, and innovative educational programs.
The DCCCD Campaign for Excellence includes six critical initiatives designed to increase the capacity of Dallas County in meeting the demands of a growing population and a competitive global marketplace.
These initiatives include:
Green Economy (Building Sustainable Communities)
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
In support of its health professions initiative, the Foundation has launched the Health Careers Resource Center, which provides extensive services for students interested in health careers and employers seeking to hire talented graduates from programs at our seven colleges.
The Foundation also supports the DCCCD STEM Institute, providing high-achieving students a comprehensive approach to pursuing a degree in a STEM discipline. STEM scholars interact with dedicated, passionate faculty and participate in capstone experiences designed to prepare them to complete a degree in a STEM discipline.
