May 16, 2019 | Conor Smyth

“The Governor has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to improving our ability to deliver great outcomes for students, but also for our employer partners in every sector and region of the state.”

“A survey of 2018 technical college graduates showed that 94% of respondents in the labor force were employed in Wisconsin within six months of graduation, the vast majority in a field directly related to the training they received.”

“As employers in every sector continue to struggle with finding needed talent, they view our graduates as a vital pipeline, with 83 percent saying that a local technical college is important to the success of their business.”
