Western Technical College seeks a visionary leader to work with college students, staff, faculty, and the community to advance its mission to provide relevant, high-quality education in a collaborative and sustainable environment that changes the lives of students and grows our communities.
Western has a proud history, having served the communities of western Wisconsin for more than 100 years. We offer a variety of degrees, diplomas, certificates, and courses in the areas of general education and transfer, business, health and public safety, and industrial technology.
A successful $79.8 million taxpayer referendum in 2012 has allowed the college to remodel most of the facilities on the La Crosse campus, providing advanced student and classroom spaces that align with Western's Vision 2020 Strategic Plan.
