New mission, new name, same commitment to technical education.

Already a comprehensive college, Alexandria Technical College will now be able to offer the first two years of a liberal arts degree, providing students expanded opportunities to transfer to four-year institutions.


The changes were approved last week by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU)) Board of Trustees.
