The announcement that Taiwanese manufacturing giant Foxconn will bring 13,000 jobs to Wisconsin and partner with Gateway Technical College is great news for the state's community and technical colleges and their students, but it's not particularly surprising. The state's two-year colleges have been notching all sorts of workforce development victories in recent years, offering an array of programming in advanced manufacturing, healthcare, automotive and other fields that provide family-wage jobs for graduates and/or pathways to four-year universities, at rates often exceeding 90 percent within months after graduation. In addition to Gateway Technical College's partnership with Foxconn, this article describes Wisconsin's workforce success through programs at Madison College, Waukesha County Technical College, and Milwaukee Area Technical College.
