School Notes

  • In the summer of 1967, STI moved into three buildings on the Armory grounds, and opened in September under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Board of Regional Community Colleges. In August 1968, the Institute's name was changed to Springfield Technical Community College. An initial enrollment of 400 students and a faculty of 20 began what is now one of the largest and most comprehensive community colleges in the Commonwealth, serving an increasingly diverse population. Springfield Technical Community College offers an exceptional and affordable education to prepare you for a rewarding career or to transfer to a four-year college. Students attend classes on a beautiful, historic campus where they find an experienced and caring faculty, a wide range of associate degree and certificate programs, a diverse student population and a host of services, resources and activities. STCC students enjoy small classes and individual attention, and then transfer to such fine local colleges as AIC, Springfield College, WNEC and ELMS College as well as nationally known institutions like Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst, UMass, RPI, and Boston University. STCC offers 14 programs in Health, 27 programs in Engineering Technologies and 15 programs in Business/ Information Technologies. STCC is a national leader in Entrepreneurship Education. STCC is nationally recognized; major corporations such as IBM, Verizon, Microsoft, and Ford Motor Company have formed educational alliances with the College. The National Science Foundation, which awards very few grants to community colleges, has awarded 20 grants to STCC for projects such as building specialized labs, and has named STCC as the National Center for Telecommunications Technologies. Springfield Technical Community College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc., a non-governmental, nationally recognized organization whose affiliated institutions include elementary schools through collegiate institutions offering post-graduate education.
