UW-Stevens Point Chancellor Bernie Patterson, Northcentral Technical College President Lori Weyers, Mid-State Technical College President Shelly Mondeik and Nicolet College President Richard Nelson spoke about:
- serving Northcentral Wisconsin with quality, coordinated, educational programs that use public resources effectively and efficiently;
- providing essential educational resources for communities, business, and government; and,
- contributing to regional – and thereby state – economic vitality.
The UW-Stevens Point nursing program partners with Northcentral, Mid-State and Nicolet through a 1+2+1 agreement, where students can start at UW-Stevens Point for a year, attend one of the technical colleges for the next two years, and complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with a final year at UWSP.
