Marinette Area Higher Education Coalition
Did you know Marinette and Menominee area residents can now earn a variety of credentials locally – from short-term certificates to master’s degrees? Diverse programs in skilled trades, health care, business, the arts, engineering, science, social services, and many more career fields are located right here in Marinette! It’s all possible through the Marinette Area Higher Education Coalition, a collaboration between NWTC Marinette and University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Marinette Campus. The Coalition is our commitment to the region to serve our communities with a wide range of educational and cultural experiences.
Marinette Higher Education Coalition streamlines visit experiences
Prior to our joint efforts as the Marinette Area Higher Education Coalition, each of our campuses - NWTC Marinette and UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus - hosted separate events showcasing our programs and support for students. That approach meant more work for our K12 partners and more days away from school for their students. Students came away from those visits thinking they had to choose one campus or the other for their higher education goals.
