Flint Hills Technical College (FHTC) is a two-year public institution of higher education nestled in east-central Kansas's rolling hills. It is located at the intersection of I-35 and the Kansas Turnpike in Emporia, a city in the heart of the beautiful rangeland known as the Flint Hills and just a short distance from the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
Flint Hills Technical College's mission is to provide a diverse community of learners with lifelong educational opportunities for personal growth and preparation for professional and civic responsibilities that meet the needs of society.
The administration, faculty, and staff of Flint Hills Technical College believe in the power of teaching and learning and endorse the right of each person to access opportunities in the pursuit of knowledge and its life application. The College's primary commitment is to support student success in learning and prepare well-educated, productive members of society who can achieve personal and professional success in a global environment. To that end, Flint Hills Technical College strives to remove barriers to the educational process by providing accessible and affordable opportunities, including articulations with other institutions. It recognizes the general education curriculum and learning outcomes as necessary and integral components of the study's technical programs. Flint Hills Technical College embraces a philosophy where freedom of expression is encouraged in an orderly, nurturing environment and ensures continuous improvement in the educational process through ongoing assessment and evaluation.
