Vice President of Student Success

For more than 100 years, Madison College, a world-class community college headquartered in Madison, Wis., has offered experiential learning opportunities to a diverse population of students with varying educational needs. Nearly 34,000 students come to classes at campuses in Madison, Fort Atkinson, Portage, Reedsburg and Watertown. Students choose from more than 150 programs from liberal arts, agriculture, business, education and information technology to health, industrial maintenance, advanced manufacturing, science, engineering, transportation and more. They may explore two-year associate degree programs, technical diplomas, certificates, two post-baccalaureate programs and hundreds of noncredit classes designed for professional development to start or advance careers, or for personal enrichment. Nearly half of our students go on to pursue an advanced degree via transfer opportunities to four-year colleges and universities nationwide in both technical and liberal arts programs. Madison College is the largest source of transfer students to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and offers one of the lowest costs per credit among area colleges and two-year University of Wisconsin campuses. The college's students save an average of nearly $13,000 per year in tuition and fees, with several financial aid options, allowing them to choose the quality education they want and deserve. Madison College provides accessible learning for students who may select from online courses available 24/7, as well as hybrid classes that combine online and face-to-face learning, or accelerated courses that propel them toward graduation even quicker.
