WTCS Student Success Center

The WTCS Student Success Center, established in 2017 as a member of the national Student Success Center Network, is a statewide association focused on implementing and supporting student success efforts within all 16 technical colleges of the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). The goals of the WTCS Student Success Center are to improve completion rates and student outcomes, support the development of student-centered pathways at our colleges, and continue expanding our collaborative community to better share information and best practices relating to student success strategies.   

The WTCS Student Success Center is funded with generous support from Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation & Affiliates, and technical assistance is provided by Jobs for the Future.
The WTCS Student Success Center Core Team is based out of the WTCS System Office. To contact any member of the Core Team, please email us at:

EVENT - 2nd Annual WTCS Student Success Summit:   July 24-25, 2018 (Location: Madison, WI)



Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) has shared a Guided Pathways introduction video they created to outline the benefits of implementing the Pathways model and being a “student-ready” college. The CCRC’s Scale of Adoption Assessment and their 19 Essential Practices are based on the principles of Guided Pathways, and MATC’s video does a great job of highlighting some of the foundational motivations and goals of the WTCS Student Success Center in their explanation of Guided Pathways. This is just one example of many exciting projects being done throughout our System, and we invite all of our providers to continue sharing exceptional student success endeavors such as this with the Core Team and our statewide Student Success Center Network! Please email us at to shine a spotlight on the great work being done by your college’s Student Success Center Team.
