Key Initiatives

The Governor directed that agencies' 2017-19 biennial budget requests focus on opportunities to support the workforce and continue enhancing the state’s economy. The initiatives included in our request were developed specifically to address these goals, recognizing the vital and unique role Wisconsin's technical colleges play in providing the skilled workforce Wisconsin needs to foster economic growth.

The Governor and the Legislature have taken steps to provide additional resources to support need-based Wisconsin Grants for WTCS students, and WTCS is focused on building on our successes. The System's budget request addresses the Governor’s goals by:

  • maintaining outcomes-based funding at 30 percent of general state aid, and supporting additional modest investments to foster outcomes-based innovations; and
  • transforming dual enrollment to best support high school students earning technical college credit.
