General Information About Ozarks Technical Community College
Ozarks Technical Community College (OTC) was founded April 3, 1990 when the residents of Springfield school district and 13 surrounding public school districts voted to establish a "community technical college." Since that time, OTC has continued to uphold a core-set of values that include quality, opportunity, accessibility, learning, diversity, innovation, community, respect, integrity and personal growth. We uphold a mission to promote student learning through accessible, high-quality, affordable workforce training, and technical and general education that is responsive to the educational needs of the community and its diverse constituencies.
