Celebrating 50 Years

Hennepin Technical College 50th Anniversary logo

Hennepin Technical College (Hennepin Tech) was founded in 1972 when 13 public school districts formed an independent post-secondary school. Named Suburban Hennepin County Area Vocational Technical Centers-District 287, it was the first suburban college in Minnesota.

During the past five decades, Hennepin Tech has been innovative in adapting its academic programs and services as the needs of students and Minnesota’s workforce have changed. Today the college is nationally recognized for providing an affordable, high-quality education for students entering the skilled trades and high-demand careers.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary beginning in the summer of 2022 through spring 2023. On social media, use the following hashtag: #HTC50.
