NWTC Student Success Center

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College

NWTC recognized the idea that student life and learning are not separate activities and knew that they needed to enhance student engagement to improve learning. Learning often occurs when multiple students meet, study and share their ideas about classes, projects, and homework outside of the traditional classroom. The design of the Student Success Center promotes collaboration between many different students who are pursuing various degrees, improving their success by joining multiple disciplines and ideas together.
