Founded in 1953 with sponsorship by Rensselaer County, Hudson Valley was the eighth community college established in New York subsequent to the adoption of a 1948 education law permitting counties to create publicly funded two-year colleges. Rensselaer County converted the Veteran's Vocational School on Seventh Avenue in Troy into a broader technical training program first called the Troy Technical Institute. That name was changed within a few months to Hudson Valley Technical Institute, to reflect the wider area the school hoped to serve, and then again to Hudson Valley Community College as the school's educational mission broadened.
- Hudson Valley Community College serves approximately 13,000 students each semester, and employs more than 600 full- and part-time faculty members.
Currently the second-largest institution of higher learning in the Capital Region of New York State, Hudson Valley Community College offers more than 70 degree and certificate programs through its four schools: Business; Engineering & Industrial Technologies; Health Sciences; and Liberal Arts and Sciences.
- The campus provides extensive, state-of-the-art facilities to support its academic programs, including the Bulmer Telecommunications Center, which encompasses the latest innovations in multi-media presentation, video teleconferencing, distance learning, and instructional technology, and the McDonough Sports Complex, a 126,000-square-foot recreational facility that contains a field house and the ice rink.
