The tour is designed to promote efforts within the House to expand career and technical education to fill the in-demand jobs of today. Thaddeus Stevens College is a residential, two-year, accredited technical college that educates Pennsylvania’s economically and socially disadvantaged, as well as other qualified students for skilled employment in a diverse, ever-changing workforce and for full effective participation as citizens. Stevens has expanded from its original student body of 15 to over 1,000 students who are enrolled in 22 high-skill, high-wage technical programs. Over 90 percent of the college’s graduates have remained in the Commonwealth since its founding in 1905. Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology is Pennsylvania’s only state-owned, two-year college of technology.
