Dallas Baptist University will begin construction in the fall on its first residential college for students, a learning/living community that will focus on Christian servant leadership and how that affects a variety of vocations.  It is scheduled to open in the 2019 fall semester. The residential college is the driving force behind DBU’s Transform Campaign, an $8.5 million project. The college will be located in Ford Village, a 20-acre area on the east side of the campus that can accommodate up to 500 additional students, in addition to providing new academic and community facilities.  This construction is made possible through the support of donors John and Nita Ford.
