FVTC eying major expansion plans

October 24, 2011

From fox11online.com: “FVTC eying major expansion plans” — GRAND CHUTE – An area technical college is eying major expansion plans.

Fox Valley Technical College is considering five major projects to the tune of more than $65 million.

With enrollment up 30 percent over the last three years, the school says it will soon be bursting at the seams.

“We’ve done everything that we can do to meet the demand of the public and dislocated workers coming to us to get retrained for jobs,” Chris Matheny, Vice President of Instructional Services said.

Matheny says many of the school’s facilities are at capacity. He feels the time is right for an expansion.

“Even in a down economy, 85 percent of our graduates when they leave here are getting jobs, so I think it’s really a time to ask ourselves is it worth making an investment in the future so that continued generations and continued people in the Fox Cities can have access to those services,” Matheny added.

The college wants public input on the $65 to 85 million expansion plan.
