DCCCD Campus Building

The Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) has been an NCSE Member for seven years. DCCCD is working to become an environmental leader in their community, continually advocating for the wise use of natural, financial, and human resources through mindful education and action across their seven campuses. DCCCD aims to embed sustainability principles into the curricula of all degrees with the goal for all students to be exposed to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and Project Drawdown. Students also have the opportunity to complete a voluntary co-curricular program which allows them to graduate with special recognition and distinguishes them in the workforce.

Did You Know? Two of the seven community colleges have earned multiple national first place titles in RecycleMania. RecycleMania is a friendly competition among colleges and universities in the United States managed by the National Wildlife Federation. The national competition provides the campus community with a fun way to reduce waste, reuse items, and recycle materials. The traveling trophy named “Pin Man” is made of an old bowling pin and other recycled materials.
