President's Office


Whether you are just beginning your higher education journey after high school, changing careers, or looking to enhance your skills, we will be with you every step of the way. Our strong history of providing relevant training for the region’s workforce exemplifies the staying power and importance of technical education to our communities. Our students receive individualized attention from talented and experienced faculty who prepare them for rewarding careers in today’s skills-based economy.

Our most recent job placement follow-up study of 2018 graduates shows that 94% of our alumni are employed within six months of graduation. These graduates saw an average starting salary of about $42,000. What’s even more impressive is the earning power of our graduates over time, as our 2013 graduates are earning an average annual salary of $53,108. And, if the workforce isn’t your next step after graduation, a four-year degree is a viable option thanks to the numerous credit transfer options we have with other colleges and universities here in the region and beyond.

The College’s close connections to area employers help us create quality educational programs that are well-grounded in industry. Many employers help provide high-tech equipment and technology, staff expertise, and work-based learning opportunities for our students. Each year over 2,000 employers also look to us to deliver customized training for their employees, representing industries ranging from retail to service to manufacturing and more. We also help entrepreneurs in starting their own business!

Fox Valley Technical College is dedicated to making its courses and services as accessible and affordable as possible for more than 50,000 people each year. Programming is offered at our campuses in Appleton and Oshkosh, regional centers in Chilton, Clintonville, Waupaca, and Wautoma, and at a number of adult basic education sites throughout the region. Through our National Criminal Justice Training Center, the College leads many national grant-funded programs that address child protection, missing persons, tribal policing, and other law enforcement initiatives in all 50 states.

FVTC has much to offer and brings real value to individuals, employers, and communities. Thank you for considering us as your lifelong partner in learning, and please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns, or partnership ideas.
