Office of Instruction

Annette Severson, Associate Vice President

The Office of Instruction provides leadership for the System’s postsecondary and adult education programs to promote economic and workforce development.  Education directors within this office serve as a resource to the colleges and oversee System instructional offerings in:

  • Agriculture, Natural Resources and Renewable Energy
  • Apprenticeship, Architecture and Construction
  • Business and Information Technology

  • EMS, Fire Service and Protective Services
  • Family and Consumer Services
  • Finance, Marketing and Hospitality

The Office of Instruction works with college administrators and staff to identify labor market trends and develop instructional programs to respond to the needs of Wisconsin business and industry for a highly skilled workforce, ensure high quality and avoid unnecessary program duplication.

The Office assists colleges in obtaining Board approval for new instructional programs and course curriculum.  It also conducts program audits, assists colleges with program improvement (modification and discontinuance), and oversees the development of systemwide program curricula.

In addition, the Office of Instruction provides systemwide leadership for program articulation and transfer agreements with other colleges and universities, transfer information system, EMS testing, and firefighter certification.  It administers federal grant programs for technical skill attainment and programs of study development, and state grant programs for health care education, new and expanding occupations and faculty development.

The Office of Instruction reports to the WTCS Provost and Vice President of Student Success.
