The Future of Dallas College
What You Should Expect
Education for a Lifetime
As a low-cost place to launch one’s future, expand career options and experience new opportunities, Dallas College will educate our future workforce in English language skills, critical thinking and problem solving – everything needed for being a long- term employee.
Education that Dallas County Needs
Dallas County faces unique challenges. Its population is younger, more diverse, and likely to have been born outside Dallas County. Since very few trades or technologies do not require English communication skills, Dallas College is where students’ English language skills can be strengthened through the reinstatement of those support programs needed by these creative, striving students. Equipping Dallas College graduates to tackle the challenges posed by an ever changing technology or for pursuing a career path to college will make them successful for the long term. Turnover is expensive for both the employer and the employee.
Education which helps Businesses Succeed
Right now, there’s a shortage of workers trained in the trades, healthcare, and education fields. While many of these jobs don’t require 4-year degrees, they do require in-depth, affordable training in critical thinking and problem solving, as well as the English language skills to communicate with the rest of the team. Dallas College must expand opportunities for students to get on the learn-to-work success track by equipping them with more than entry level skills and by providing businesses with the skilled staff and workforce they need for this year and the next.
