The Community Education Department is dedicated to enhancing and improving the lives of community members by offering courses, workshops, seminars, tours, conferences, and other activities that expands their area of knowledge. Community Education is focused on providing experiences, knowledge, and information to the general public at an affordable cost and is geared toward all ages and educational levels. The goal of Community Education is to provide opportunities for individuals to explore new areas of interest, brush up on skills, and to develop employable skills that is needed and desired by employers.

Located at the Village Mall, the Community Education Department is convenient and easily accessible. Approximately 90% of the classes are taught at the mall while the rest are held at the DACC campus. At the Village Mall, the Community Education Department is fortunate to house four classrooms. We have two typical classrooms, a computer lab, and a "mess" classroom fro such classes as cake decorating and pottery.
