Spring 2022: MATC Annual Report

2021_annual-report-cover.png

“As the state's largest and most diverse two-year college, this past year was remarkable and filled with uncertainty as we faced another year of the pandemic. We demonstrated our resilience by triumphing over adversity, and our commitment to our students by remaining steadfast to our mission of 'education that transforms lives, industry and community.' 

Key results in 2021-22 include: removing a barrier that was preventing hundreds of students from registering for classes due to small balances they owed, issuing automatic retention grants to 1,500 students nearing graduation, engaging 100+ employees in a monthly virtual series with the Race & Equity Center at the University of Southern California, and providing $4.3 million in debt relief to reengage nearly 6,000 students who persevered during the pandemic.”

“Our 2020 Annual Report demonstrates Milwaukee Area Technical College’s commitment to the high-quality education upon which our students and community rely, while prioritizing health and safety of our students and employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.

MATC’s strategic approach in the wake of COVID-19 included more online classes and services, technology support for students, donating needed medical supplies, extending the deadline for our free-tuition Promise program, waiving application fees and even partnering on a new 'gap year' experience with NEWaukee as more individuals defer college plans.”
