(DALLAS) — Dallas College has received $9 million in Title V Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Grants from the U.S. Department of Education after submitting proposals earlier this year.

The money will go to three of our campuses, El Centro, Eastfield and North Lake, while supporting various initiatives across Dallas College. The funds will be used to expand educational opportunities and improve the recruitment of Hispanic students.

Additionally, these grants will support the introduction of new work-based learning programs for interns and apprentices. They will also fund culturally responsive course enhancements, facilitate faculty use of online instruction tools that improve faculty-student engagement, and create a bilingual orientation program that is inclusive of family.

Taken together, all new programs made possible by this funding are designed to help underserved students become successful and overcome barriers.

An HSI is a college that has at least 25% full-time Hispanic enrollment.

The grants begin Oct. 1 and end Sept. 30, 2025.
