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.

SPOTLIGHT

The Appleton Post Crescent recently featured the partnership between Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC) and the Appleton International Airport, who plan to develop an Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) training facility with $10.4 million in recent federal funding awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation. FVTC will work with the airport to provide training at the new facility for emergency responders, and the expansion is expected to benefit firefighters throughout the region after similar training facilities recently closed. The partnership between FVTC and the airport is another demonstration of how closely aligned Wisconsin's technical colleges are with local businesses and workforce development partners.This complex partnership will undoubtedly benefit students and employers, as well as Appleton and the region, as the partners launch this new training facility.
