BISMARCK (UTN) – United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) is celebrating the 50th year golden anniversary as a tribal college.

From humble beginnings in 1969 as the United Tribes Employment Training Center providing vocational training, adult education, and personal development classes, to United Tribes Technical College, an accredited institution offering certificate, associate, and bachelor, degree programs of study. UTTC continues to refine and offer educational programs that are focused on addressing tribal, state, and regional, the workforce needs to ensure employment for our graduates.

Founded 50 years ago by the Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe, Spirit Lake Tribe, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Three Affiliated Tribes, and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, UTTC has served over ten thousand American Indian students from more than 75 federally recognized Indian Tribes across the nation. In addition to American Indians, the college welcomes and serves students of all backgrounds.

As we look back on our shared accomplishments, we move forward with excitement about what the next 50 years will bring. Please join us as we “Celebrate 50 Years: Building on a Legacy of Success.”
