Herzing College, Toronto Campus (HCTC) began as a computer training school in 1965 and was acquired by what is now Herzing University (an institution of higher education in the United States) in 1968. It has operated continuously since then under the management and educational culture established by Henry Herzing. It was part of the Herzing University entity until 2014 when a Higher Learning Commission (HLC) accreditation rule necessitated the separation from the colleges operating in Canada. At this time there is no relationship between the Herzing College System in Canada, of which HCTC is part, and Herzing University other than: 1) a license to use the University’s course materials from its cybersecurity bachelor’s degree program and its business degree program and 2) an articulation agreement that allows for transfer of some Herzing College courses to bachelor’s degree programs at Herzing University,

Henry Herzing, founder with his wife of the Herzing College System and Herzing University, remains on the Board of the Trustees of Herzing University and is President of the Herzing College System. For the tenth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Herzing University’s online bachelor’s degree programs among the best in the United States. Herzing University’s online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program was recognized as a leading online graduate program.

HCTC also benefits from the extensive experience of Frank Cianciaruso, Chief Operations Officer for Herzing College System, who, with Mr. Herzing, participated in the evolution of Herzing University from diploma and associate degree programs to bachelor’s and master’s degree status. This attainment was recognized as part of Herzing University’s accreditation by the HLC of the North Central Association, the same entity that accredits the University of Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and numerous other well-known public and private universities.

Although initially dedicated to computer technology training, HCTC has expanded its postsecondary reach over the years to include various programs in fields such as business, heath care, media, and the trades. The Herzing College System in Canada also expanded geographically to include campus locations in Ottawa, Montreal, and Winnipeg as well as a teaching location in Cambridge. HCTC attributes its success and endurance over the years to its culture of high ethical standards, respect for all individuals, commitment to continuous improvement, quality teaching and learning, student success initiatives and services, and commitment to the communities and industries it serves and supports.

HCTC benefits from the experience and expertise of the campuses in Ottawa, Montreal, and Winnipeg as well as the support of its Canadian Corporate Office. The Canadian Corporate Office provides support in human resources, accounting and finance, admissions, counselling, career services, professional development, legal, marketing and communications, and academic quality assurance and compliance. This allows HCTC to call upon the resources and talent of a larger organization and enables it to focus on quality teaching and learning.
