WTCS Board Overview

The Wisconsin Technical College System Board is the governing body for the Technical College System. The 13-member Board establishes statewide policies and standards for educational programs and services provided by the 16 technical colleges. The Board is also responsible for administering state and federal aids to the colleges.

Meanwhile, each technical college serves a geographical area referred to as a district. The 16 districts deliver technical education which meets the needs and interests of each local labor market. Districts have nine-member appointed boards and are empowered to levy property taxes to fund the cost of instruction, facilities, equipment and staff.
