Adjunct Faculty Handbook

Introduction

Brookhaven College opened its doors in 1978 as one of the seven colleges of the Dallas County Community College District. Located on a 200-acre campus in the city of Farmers Branch, the college serves the northern portion of Dallas County, including Addison, Carrollton, Farmers Branch and North Dallas.

Brookhaven College offers a full range of freshman- and sophomore-level courses leading to the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degrees. Associate in Applied Science degrees and certificates and Associate of Arts in Teaching degrees are also available.

Brookhaven College offers day, evening, weekend, flexible and online classes to provide a convenient time for most schedules. Students can attend Brookhaven College while attending another college or university; some even begin their course work while still in high school.

The Workforce and Continuing Education Division offers courses and programs for workforce training and lifelong learning.
