Northeast Wisconsin Technical College is reopening its campuses including Sturgeon Bay this fall to resume hands-on learning as well as limited classroom sessions. NWTC closed down in mid-March as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Non-laboratory classes continued online and through other remote learning options, which will also be offered for the summer semester starting June 5th. NWTC President Jeff Rafn says some areas of study need to be offered in lab settings as well as classrooms and extensive safety precautions will be taken.
NWTC students, with the exception of those in the dental hygiene program in Green Bay, were allowed back on campus as some courses required. Dr. Rafn says they'll be able to go onto their fall courses with little disrupution.
