Board of Trustees

Board members are elected officials who serve six-year terms without compensation.

Abbott’s Order, as well as to comply with the terms of orders issued by Dallas County and the City of Dallas requiring persons to stay home and stay safe during the period this pandemic emergency, the Dallas County Community College District Board of Trustees will be meeting virtually, via a web-based, online platform.
