Quote from the President
“For over 100 years, Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) has been fulfilling its mission of enriching lives and strengthening the economy by preparing a workforce that is skilled, diverse, and flexible. We've been able to thrive because of our unique collaboration with local business and government. Today, Lakeshore Technical College is a leader in solving the manufacturing skills gap. The first capital campaign in the history of the college recently raised $3 million to quickly expand and modernize its Center for Manufacturing Excellence in order to meet the critical need for manufacturing workers in our area.”
Lakeshore Technical College has strong local employer relationships. Over 350 area
employers collaborate to shape curriculum through a network of advisory committees totaling nearly 700 participants. As a result, 97% of employers who employ LTC grads say they are satisfied or very satisfied and would hire another LTC grad.
The college offers unique programs such as wind energy, the only associate degree program of its kind in Wisconsin. In addition, sustainability education is a core curriculum class at LTC.
Lakeshore Technical College has the nation’s longest running community college nuclear tech program, founded in 1972.
LTC offers a Culinary Arts School as part of an operating restaurant in nearby Sheboygan, WI. The Lakeshore Culinary Institute is open to the public and students operate the business as part of their curriculum.
