Wisconsin - Hessen Faculty Exchange 

Wisconsin Technical College System Global Education Institute: Hessen, Germany Faculty & Staff Exchange Program



In August of 1998, Tommy Thompson, Governor of Wisconsin, declared a partnership between the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) and the Hessian Ministry of Education to enter into agreement to achieve the following objectives:
  • Student exchanges
  • Staff exchanges
  • Development of mutual beneficial associations or partnerships between vocational technical colleges and businesses
  • Attainment of a better understanding of the different cultures through experience
  • Furthering the development of the dual system of vocational education for Hesse and Wisconsin
Each year several WTCS, including Fox Valley Technical College, faculty enter into an exchange with a German faculty member from the state of Hesse in Germany. The German participants travel to the U.S. in October and are hosted by their U.S. faculty partner for two weeks. The following year, in May or June, the U.S. faculty participant travels to Germany to stay with their German partner to complete the exchange program.

Information regarding the 2009-2010 exchange will arrive soon.
