By the Numbers: Dallas College Does More Than Education

Dallas College had 5,012 students walk the graduation stage this past summer. Seeing students fulfill their educational dreams and learn the skills necessary to enter the workforce is a big part of what Dallas College does.

But the college does more than that, which is sometimes lost in the shuffle of the daily grind. As we wind down 2022 and look ahead to 2023, there’s no better time to reflect on everything the college has accomplished in the classrooms and beyond.

These numbers showcase just why it’s so rewarding to work for Dallas College.

  • 415,000: More than 415,000 pounds of food distributed to needy families.
  • 346,170: Meals distributed throughout the community.
  • $247,000: Grant received from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board that will support our Student Care Network in piloting a new family resource initiative in 2023.
  • 20,366: Attendance for the Dallas College night at Globe Life Field on May 18. The Rangers had a 6-5 victory over the LA Angels, too!
  • 2,500: The Counseling and Psychological Services offered more than 2,500 sessions in mental health in the Fall of 2022.
  • 1,415: Students signed up for the first-ever Dallas College Field Day, hosted by Health Services and Health Promotions.
  • 344: Employees signed up for the inaugural field day.
  • 120: Average number of students a month supported with emergency aid assistance. That number is expected to grow to 160 students per month in January 2023. Funds go toward things such as housing, utilities, food, childcare fees and transportation.
