For the past seventeen years, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with, learn from, and lead diverse teams at Fox Valley Technical College with the shared goal of providing “Knowledge That Works”.
I have never been prouder of our students, faculty, and staff than I am today. Navigating through an unprecedented year, with incredible challenges, we have successfully supported nearly 45,000 individuals in growing their basic skills, preparing for a career, enhancing their job skills, or simply enriching their lives through education.
As I begin my new role as president of FVTC, I am hopeful for our future and thankful for the dedication of the nearly 1,500 full- and part-time staff members who serve our students every day. We are committed to keeping Fox Valley Technical College a regional, state, and national leader in technical education and to improving educational outcomes for our students, customers, and partners.
As you interact with our faculty and staff, you’ll learn that no matter your educational goals, your personal or professional background, or career aspiration, you are welcome at Fox Valley Tech. We know that whether you want to get a fresh start, land your first job, or help your employees develop skills that will grow your business, you’ll need a trusted partner along the way. I hope that you’ll visit one of our campuses or regional centers to find out how we can help you along your journey.
There will be challenges and opportunities along the way; but we are ready to help. In fact, we’re just getting started. It is an exciting time to be a part of the Fox Valley Technical College family. Thank you for joining us on this journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. And, I hope you return back here in the future for further updates.
Dr. Chris Matheny
President, Fox Valley Technical College
