Milwaukee Area Technical College president Martin goes “On the Issues” at Marquette Law
Martin will discuss the college’s larger strategy for meeting the needs of its students and the region’s employers.
MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Area Technical College President Vicki Martin will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
With four campuses and more than 38,000 students in the area, MATC plays an important role in the region’s economic fortunes. But the college hopes to have an even greater impact. In September, Martin introduced the “MATC Promise,” a plan to offer a free college education for area high school graduates who meet program eligibility requirements.
In addition to explaining how the plan will work, Martin will discuss the college’s larger strategy for meeting the needs of its students and the region’s employers, many of whom will be looking to fill middle-skill jobs that require more than a high school diploma but not a bachelor’s degree.
Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” interviews of newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
The event is open to the public and registration is available online.
