Dakota County Technical College endeavors to serve students within nearby communities, as well as those coming from countries around the world. The majority of students work toward degrees and diplomas in a variety of programs to prepare them for employment. However, the college is also proud of its general education department, whose courses are part of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum. As members of a student-centered organization, all employees, faculty members and administrators are focused on ways to continuously improve student learning within the college's mission. Along the way, DCTC has become a leader in delivering sustainable technologies, service-learning opportunities, and community engagement into the curricula of most programs.
The mission of Dakota County Technical College is to provide collegiate-level education for employment that will empower individuals to enhance their opportunities for career advancement and success in a global economy.
To meet that mission, DCTC faculty, programs and facilities uphold all appropriate credentials, accreditations and standards.
Our Civic Engagement Committee strives to bring community service into our academic curriculums. Teaching students citizenship skills through community involvement is a critical job of higher education.
