El Centro College
Dallas, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)

To meet the increased need for opportunity in higher education that their expanding economy and growing population demanded, the citizens of Dallas County voted in May, 1965, to establish the Junior College District. By a margin of more than three to one a bond issue of $41,500,000 was authorized. More than 50,000 citizens signed petitions to call the election. Each section of the county and each chamber of commerce of the county were represented at a steering committee. The Dallas County Junior College bond issue had widespread support from virtually every organized group in the County plus tremendous grass roots support from citizens at large who were convinced the junior college could solve or alleviate their dilemma.

El Centro College opened in 1966 as the first campus of the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD). Located in the Central Business District of the City of Dallas, El Centro College enrolled over twenty-four hundred full time students in its first year of operation. In addition, evening and non-credit classes served over four thousand part-time students. Additional campuses opened in 1969 and 1970. At that time, students enrolled in Dallas County Junior Colleges reached around 18,000 to 20,000, with an additional 30,000 part-time students attending late afternoon and evening classes. Today, the Dallas County Community College District is among the largest in the United States with over 57,000 credit students enrolled in a given semester.


El Centro College is an urban learning institution preparing students to live, to work and to be of service in a diverse, global society.


In keeping with the mission, the purpose of El Centro College is to provide:

* Freshman and sophomore courses in the liberal arts;
* Workforce education programs leading to associates degrees or certificates;
* Continuing adult education programs for occupational or cultural enrichment;
* Education programs designed for students who need additional preparation in order to be ready for college level course work;
* Comprehensive student services, including on-going counseling and guidance designed to assist students in achieving their individual educational goals;
* Adult literacy and other basic skills programs;
* A variety of instructional delivery modes, to include online and distance education; and
* Such other programs and services as may be prescribed by the Texas Coordinating Board, or local governing boards in the best interest of post-secondary education in Texas.
