- Denver Automotive Institute, as we were known then, held its first class of 27 students in downtown Denver, Colorado in May of 1963. As student population and demand grew, a Diesel Mechanics curriculum was added in 1966. Within three years a newly-renovated 71,000 sq. ft. facility opened, fully realizing our new name: Denver Automotive and Diesel College - DADC. Enhancing program offerings and estabilishing credibility as one of the top national educators became a priority. The consistent and regular refinements we made met various NATEF requirements and we became a "Master Certified Automotive School". Soon afterwards, we further enhanced our programs by adding Associate of Applied Science Degree Programs in Automotive, Diesel and Master Technology. DADC's Automotive and Diesel programs can help you learn the diagnostic procedures necessary to determine complex problems, fix them and provide ongoing maintenance. In addition, you'll have an in-depth understanding of why automotive and diesel engines work the way they do, allowing you to better fix and maintain vehicles, and provide a higher level of service. Using hands-on training, a solid system of knowledge and our long-standing reputation with major manufacturers and shops, we can help you jump-start your career in the Automotive and Diesel Industries. Denver Automotive and Diesel College (DADC) can offer you endless possibilities and opportunities to pursue skiing, snowboarding, snowdecks, snowskates, and other winter activities. DADC utilizes several fund sources to assist students in paying for their education. Funding is provided by Federal grants, various scholarships, Veterans benefits, low interest Perkins (Campus Based) loans, low interest Stafford loans, and by other fund sources specifically designed to fund education to qualified applicants at DADC.

We continue to report on the ongoing saga in the California community college system. Schools are now opening for fall semester with fewer courses due to serious budget cuts, and students are feeling the academic pain.
The role of community colleges in the world of higher education has expanded over the years and, as the country works to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, they may be more important now than ever. Read on to learn more about the changing role of community colleges.
Colleges across the country are struggling to recover from the massive upheaval to the 2019-20 semester wrought by COVID-19. Housing refunds and slashed budgets are bound to have long-term impacts for the institutions that survive. Some experts suggest community colleges may be the best equipped to ride out the storm and may have the greatest impact in helping America recover.
