School Notes

  • Northeast Wisconsin Technical College is a publicly supported, high technology college working closely with businesses and residents of Northeast Wisconsin to provide the education that residents and employers need. Schools sprang up in Green Bay and Marinette in 1913, followed in 1941 by a school in Sturgeon Bay. Their scope expanded to include adults of all ages who were interested in technical careers, whether or not they were in the workforce. In 1968, the three schools joined to become a single district in what is now the Wisconsin Technical College System. The combined service areas of the Green Bay, Marinette, and Sturgeon Bay campuses include part or all of nine counties. Today, NWTC offers over 70 Associate Degree and Technical Diploma programs, nearly 40 certificates, contracted business services, personal enrichment and continuing education courses. This wide range of programs serves a wide variety of needs; in an average year, NWTC serves one in eight District residents, or nearly 40,000 people. The Green Bay campus is the largest of the three campuses. The growing complex includes the District offices, a police and fire-fighter training center, and specialized education buildings for hands-on education in business and information technology, health occupations, construction trades, manufacturing technology, and protective services. NWTC is a member of the Wisconsin Technical College System. We are accredited through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Institutions of Higher Education.
