Richland College is a community college that is part of the Dallas County Community College District and is located near the Lake Highlands area of Dallas, Texas (USA) near the border with Richardson and Garland. The school was founded in 1972 and is the largest school in the DCCCD, featuring nearly 24,000 students. It is located on the old Jackson farm and contains 155 acres (0.63 km2). It has preserved the rural beauty with a brook flowing through the campus. Richland offers dual enrollment, and has a charter high school, Richland Collegiate High School, which opened in Fall 2006. In 2005, Richland became the first community college to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

In fall 2007, Richland College introduced a new associate degree in digital forensics, which includes a specialization in IA. This track focuses on the proper processing of stored and transmitted electronic data by identifying, detecting and applying the corrective measures in a timely manner to prevent data loss, unauthorized modification and destruction.

Richland College has been designated as the first two-year institution in Texas as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE2Y) for academic years 2011-2016. CAE2Ys receive formal recognition from the U.S. government, as well as opportunities for prestige and publicity for their role in securing our nation’s information systems.

Richland offers one of the largest English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) programs in the DCCCD. This includes the American English & Culture Institute (AECI), a program for international F-1 students.

Richland College practices teaching, learning and community building throughout all of its programs. Of particular note are its excellent transfer programs and unique workforce programs. Students can earn a wide variety of certificates or Associates Degrees with emphases or fields of study in disciplines such as Multimedia, Peace Studies, Photographic/Imaging and Mass Communications/Journalism.

It has a large Student Media program, and is home to the only DCCCD radio station, Chronicle Web Radio.

All of the buildings at Richland are named after bodies of water in Texas, including Thunderduck Hall, named after the stream separating the campus.
