The Need

Growing minds, businesses and communities through innovative learning experience is the overall mission of MPTC.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Wisconsin’s population in 2040 is projected to be nearly 6,500,000, a gain of more than 800,000 people, or 14 percent, from 2010. If approved by Moraine Park district voters, with these funds Moraine Park can address many campus growth needs fairly quicklyverses spreading the enhancements out over many years. 

The benefits will be seen through enhancements to current learning spaces, expansion of facilities, and new construction, which will bring opportunities for program expansion and enhanced training. 

Business and Industry Needs - There are expected to be: More than 14,000 manufacturing and 10,000 health care jobs openings in our region over the next 10 years. A 14 percent population growth in Wisconsin by 2040 (according to the Wisconsin Department of Administration). 94% of employers are satisfied with graduate's technical college education. 112 programs and certificates available to students at Moraine Park. +90% of graduates employed within six months of graduation.

Moraine Park Technical College must update and expand facilities to:

  •  Respond to the growing workforce shortages
  •  Accommodate evolving industry expectations
  •  Address evolving technology, including in the areas of automation and robotics
  •  Provide greater access to all district communities 
  •  Align with community expectations and workforce training requirements
  • Prepare students and workforces of the future.
Each year MPTC awards nearly 2,000 degrees, diplomas and certificates.

We need to invest in this kind of growth either way. If a referendum passes, we will accelerate Moraine Park’s ability to grow by about 15 years. If it does not, it will take the College 15 years to catch up.

– Jim Eden, Moraine Park Vice President of Academic Affairs
