Sustainable Dallas College

​F​or more than 50 years Dallas College has helped identify and deliver solutions to the real-life challenges faced by individuals, employers and the community. One of those challenges is building a healthy and sustainable future for Dallas County and its citizens.


Sustainable Dallas College

We are working to become an environmental leader in our community continually advocating the wise use of natural, financial and human resources through mindful education and action. Our commitment to sustainability also impacts our everyday decisions — from our academic offerings to our architecture and campus operations.


17 Sustainable Development Goals

Dallas College uses the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework for teaching our students, employees and community members about sustainability. We emphasize SDGs that directly align with our Board of Trustees' priorities, including: quality education, decent work and economic growth, reduced income inequalities, zero hunger and good health and well being.

Check out our video series, “Dallas County Supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.” The videos were developed to:

  • Showcase the great work already being done by local citizens and organizations.
  • Help you understand the important role you can play in achieving these goals in the community.
  • Inspire you to choose a goal to support.
