FQAS & Professional Development
Wisconsin State Statute and Administrative Code establish the minimum hiring and professional development requirements for academic and occupational technical college education personnel. The Faculty Quality Assurance System (FQAS) is an effort to ensure quality education by establishing minimum systemwide standards for Wisconsin’s 16 technical colleges.
The FQAS process begins with the recruitment and hiring process, identifying for colleges the minimum academic and occupational requirements for faculty as established by accreditors and federal and state licensing requirements. Each college maintains a Faculty Quality Assurance System through professional development plans that include approved educational competencies, ongoing development of occupational experience, mentoring and faculty evaluation.
If you have questions, please contact Mandy Johnson and Kristin Long at FQAS@wtcsystem.edu.
There are multiple conferences hosted through the Wisconsin Technical College System each year. Information on these opportunities can be found on the Conferences page.
