2021-23 WTCS Biennial Budget Request

Wisconsin’s technical colleges are dynamic, proven partners.

We work with students and employers to increase workforce participation and expand the talent pipeline.

A targeted annual investment with the 2021-23 biennial budget will allow our colleges to provide the education and services needed for 2,000 under and unemployed individuals each year to earn a short-term credential for employment in essential and well-paying jobs in healthcare, protective services, manufacturing, information technology, telecommunications, transportation and logistics.

Additional budget action will allow WTCS to:

  • Increase educational opportunity and equity
  • Streamline technical college operations
  • Address rising student debt
  • Acquire up-to-date firefighter certification software
