Wisconsin Technical College System seeks public input


The Wisconsin Technical College System Board is inviting the public to share perspectives on the system's priorities for the next four years with a brief web-based survey. The board will consider results of the survey as it identifies priorities for the next four years.
"Wisconsin's technical colleges have been an integral component of the state's economic success for a century by responding to the needs of students and employers," said system president Dan Clancy. "As we consider the current economic climate, the Board is interested in hearing from the public how the technical college system can help secureWisconsin's economic future."
The survey will be available online through the end of October. WTCS staff will present preliminary feedback to the board at its November meeting in Green Bay.
The Wisconsin Technical College System has 16 technical college districts throughout the state, offering more than 300 programs awarding two-year associate degrees, one- and two-year technical diplomas and short-term technical diplomas. In addition, the system is the major provider of customized training and technical assistance to Wisconsin's business and industry community.
