HISTORY OF BRYANT & STRATTON COLLEGE
Over 160 Years & Generations of Graduates
Bryant & Stratton College was founded in 1854 based on a desire to provide a practical education that gave our students the theory and experience to succeed in their careers. A lot of things have changed over the past 160 years, but our commitment to our students and staying at the forefront of career education and the workplace has not. From Dr. J. C. Bryant’s business practice “learning lab” of the 1850s to the active learning of today and from early correspondence courses to the launch of online education and training in 1997, Bryant & Stratton College has evolved into an educational institution poised for the 21st century, committed to the same principles set forth by its founders: education and career preparation.
The requirements of the workplace have continuously evolved since 1854, and as we transition from the Industrial to the Information Age, the evolution has accelerated. Keeping up with these contemporary needs requires the college to continually revise and enhance the curriculum, modify outcomes, and embrace or develop new teaching and learning methodologies. While the words in the college’s mission have changed over the years, the fundamentals have remained constant: Bryant & Stratton College is dedicated to offering a personalized career education and experience so that our graduates are prepared, not only for their careers but also for life’s adventures
