Dallas College Students




We help Dallas College develop game changing solutions to students’ challenges. From piloting new ways to support students on their paths to fulfilling, well-paid careers, to bolstering cutting-edge academic offerings, to researching what works, we use philanthropic dollars to push Dallas College to new heights of innovation. Providing students with exceptional, nation-leading educational experience. The following are highlights of our Gamer-Changers:

Case Management Studio

A world-class training center for case managers, success coaches, care navigators and other professionals who help individuals access the social services and other resources they need to succeed. This program, called the Case Management Studio at Dallas College (“CMS”), will train participants on the foundational pillars of case management, social services, support navigation and success coaching.

Initially, the CMS will support the professional development of Dallas College’s success coaches, case managers and others in our Student Care Network who support our students on their path to success. With a staff of caring adults trained in the latest student support techniques, we can ensure that every student at Dallas College succeeds.
Longer term, the CMS will be available to any individuals, locally or nationally, who want to become certified in the basics of case management and care navigation so that they can pursue a career in this field. We also expect local and national organizations that rely heavily on case managers, coaches and navigators to send their employees to the CMS to learn best practices and develop a network that connects them to others in their field.

School of Education 

Research shows that high-quality, full-day pre-K programs have significant, positive effects on school readiness, academic achievement, and high school completion rates. Still, more than 39,000 eligible children in Dallas County are not enrolled in Pre-k. The primary issue is that there aren’t enough qualified teachers to expand program offerings in North Texas.

To mitigate this issue, Dallas College has expanded its early childhood education program to make high-quality, affordable education available to those who want to serve in our local school districts. By doing so, Dallas College is set to aid in the teacher shortage with the first cohort of students enrolled in the Bachelor of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education and Teaching (B.A.S. ECE) entering the workforce in 2023, as early childhood educators, or as public school teachers.

With key support, Dallas College School of Education (SOE) is poised to become a leading incubator for exceptional teachers who will prepare future generations of students for a journey of lifelong learning.

In the Fall, SOE hosts an annual symposium which brings together early childhood thought leaders and partners.
