When it comes to student success, NWTC has set the standard for the state’s technical colleges. In 2010, NWTC was the first college in Wisconsin to join Achieving the Dream, a nonprofit dedicated to helping community college students succeed. Under the leadership of our president, Dr. Rafn, student success has become the center of our work. As a result, NWTC has been named a Leader College by Achieving the Dream for student success initiatives and one of four finalists for the AACC Awards of Excellence in the Student Success category.
In 2017, the College was selected to join Frontier Set, a diverse group of high-performing, high-potential postsecondary institutions identified by the Gates Foundation as leaders in transformation.
