Texas A&M-Commerce plans to open site in Dallas office tower

April 5, 2021
The university's College of Business and College of Education and Human Services plan to offer several of their academic programs at the location.

Texas A&M University-Commerce says it will be taking over the top two floors of a 20-story building in Dallas where it will set up headquarters for its education and business colleges.

Classes are scheduled to begin Nov. 1, 2021, at the new location, 8750 North Central Expressway.

“We’ve had our eye on Dallas for some time now, and this location, right across from NorthPark Mall — where more than 322,000 people pass by every day — gives us a very visible presence to let everyone know we’ve arrived,” says Chancellor John Sharp. “We’re excited to bring more accessible, affordable, high-quality educational opportunities to Dallas.”

The A&M-Commerce College of Business and College of Education and Human Services has plans to eventually offer several of their academic programs at the site. Both colleges’ deans will have their offices at the new location to better serve students.

The university also plans to offer bachelor’s degrees in sustainable agriculture and food systems, agribusiness, and agricultural sciences at the Dallas site. Both a bachelor’s and master’s in fine arts in visual communications will also be available.

A&M-Commerce President Mark Rudin says the new Dallas site will also promote synergies with corporate partners in program and workforce development.

The new Dallas location will offer enrollment management, financial aid, career services, student success teams, academic advising and technical support. It will boast tech-enabled shared spaces, an on-site fitness center, food services and ample parking. The site is also on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit light-rail line, making it easily accessible to students.

“This central location will bring us to the forefront of higher education in the Dallas area,” Rudin says. “It will enable A&M-Commerce to fully and effectively serve the educational needs of both rural and urban students across North Texas.”

A&M-Commerce already operates locations in Frisco, McKinney and Mesquite.
