Richland College will be the best place we can be to learn, teach, and build sustainable local and the world community.


The mission of Richland College is teaching, learning, community building.

Richland College identifies and meets the educational needs, primarily of adults, in our principal geographic service area of northeast Dallas, Richardson, and Garland, Texas. To this end, Richland College offers courses, programs, and services to empower students to achieve their educational goals and become lifelong learners and global citizens, building sustainable local and world community. We empower employees to model excellence in their service to students, colleagues, and community.

We believe that whole people who are authentically engaged in mind-spirit-body best learn, teach, serve, and lead. In individually connecting soul to role in our values-based culture, each of us contributes in nurturing the whole organization, working together in the broader context of creating whole communities and a whole, healthy planet for future generations. These beliefs are at the core of Richland's ongoing commitment to achieving exceptional performance results.
