Madison College to hold planning forums

Jack E. Daniels, Madison College president

Over the last several months, Madison College has been working on a strategic plan that will guide us over the next few years; reflecting trends in employment and educational and community needs. Much of the work to date has been informed by the input from business, industry and community leaders with whom I visited last fall and surveys and focus groups conducted by the college.

The first phase of this effort has been completed and I invite you to learn where we are in the process through a series of forums that will be held throughout our district. You will hear about our strategic areas of focus, especially as they relate to responsiveness to workforce, academic and student service needs. There are key strategic directives that I’m sure you will find interesting.


The purpose of the forum is to gather input from the community, businesses, education partners and others regarding how to advance our strategic directives. This input will be used to craft a final, yet to-be-determined plan that will meet the needs of our varied communities.
As a taxpayer who benefits from a knowledgeable and skilled workforce, you are invested in the success of Madison College. Your input and insights are of immeasurable worth as we chart the course for the future. Please join us for the community forum that’s most convenient for you:

May 7 Reedsburg Campus – Room 111
May 8 Downtown Campus – Room D240
May 12 South Campus – Atrium Community Room
May 13 Fort Atkinson Campus – Room 157
May 19 Commercial Avenue Campus – Room 108B
May 20 Portage Campus – Room 102
May 21 Truax Campus – Room C1423 (Student Lounge)

Thank you for your continued, enthusiastic support of Madison College.

Jack E. Daniels, III, Ph.D., President, Madison College
