Advisory Committees

Continuing a tradition which began over 100 years ago, Wisconsin technical colleges offer the citizens of Wisconsin an opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge, find and keep good jobs and advance in their chosen careers. It is essential that occupational, technical and adult education relate to the immediate and long-range needs of the community it serves, especially in the areas of business and industry.

To respond to these needs, the 1973 Wisconsin Statutes authorized technical college district boards to establish advisory committees representing all occupational programs offered in their districts. 

Currently, Northwood Technical College works with approximately 66 advisory committees representing all associate degree, one- and two-year technical diplomas, and certificate programs, as well as federal project service areas. Nearly 772 advisory committee members from business and industry guide programs, projects, and service areas. Northwood Tech recognizes that the program advisory committee is one of its most valuable resources in maintaining technologically current programs and services which respond to the needs of the marketplace and provide a well-prepared workforce for Northwest Wisconsin.
