The college is named after Mother Colette Hilbert, who, in 1897, established the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph, which became the college's founding congregation. In 1957, the community founded a teacher training college for its members; in 1969, having broadened its curriculum to include degrees outside of teacher training and expanded its enrollment to include both men and women, the institution officially became known as Hilbert College.
In 1992, Hilbert began to offer four-year degrees for the first time; today, it offers 18 four-year degree programs, including one of only a few Computer Security and Information Assurance and Cybersecurity programs in the entire country and the first undergraduate Rehabilitation Services Program in Western New York. Hilbert added its first graduate programs in 2011 and adult and evening bachelor-level programs in 2012.
