NWTC looks to rebound post-pandemic

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s April Konitzer is optimistic about the future as the impact of the pandemic wears down. Enrollment was down approximately 8.5 percent systemwide over the previous year. As the regional manager for the Sturgeon Bay and Luxemburg campuses, Konitzer says gains made from students looking to stay close to home for post-secondary education were offset by others who decided not to go back to save money. With NWTC announcing it would return to in-person classes this fall last month, Konitzer says the staff is very excited by the opportunity.

Some programs will even get a soft launch this fall. The pandemic has not been all bad according to Konitzer, who believes communication between staff members and students has improved because of more flexible schedules and the additional ways to touch base with each other.
