Dallas Baptist University was originally founded as Decatur Baptist College in 1898 and was the first two-year institution of higher education in Texas. After moving to Dallas in 1965, DBU has maintained its roots to Decatur and its commitment to a Baptist heritage.
Located in the rolling hills of southwestern Dallas overlooking Mountain Creek Lake, the main campus of DBU provides a safe and secluded community in a metroplex of more than 6 million people. Read more about the Dallas Fort Worth area.
