College Initiatives

Gateway continues to provide hands-on training to give students the experience they need to successfully land a job in their career field – as well as provide local business with well-trained workers. The two invigorate the economies of our Gateway Technical College District communities.

A few of the many examples of how Gateway remains a cutting-edge college include:

The promise of bright future. The Gateway Promise is Gateway’s commitment to ensuring accessibility to a college education for all qualifying students in the Gateway District. Tuition and fees beyond what students can contribute will be covered for high school graduates meeting the requirements set for grade point average, on-time graduation and income guidelines.

Gateway initiatives recognized nationally. Gateway’s quality initiatives have resulted in staff and graduates to be sought out to provide insight into their experiences with the college. One such example is when Gateway President and CEO Bryan Albrecht was invited to present the college’s well-known boot camp and Gateway Promise programs at a White House Community College Convening event. Albrecht spoke about Gateway’s Promise scholarship program as well as its nationally-known boot camp training program.

Gateway opens Kenall Protective Services Training Center. The Kenosha Campus facility will house state-of-the-art training with the potential to benefit law enforcement officers and members of the public across Wisconsin. Equipment ranges from a scientific crime scene investigation area to scenario areas providing training for students and area law enforcement professionals.

Gateway partners with Snap-on Incorporated in a national training effort. Gateway continues to partner with Snap-on for its nationally known training to develop and deliver advanced training with the goals of increased technician skills and improved productivity.

Gateway opens Reader Precision Machining and Manufacturing (RPM) Center. The RPM Center on the Elkhorn Campus offers innovative state-of-the-art manufacturing education which leads to solid, family-sustaining careers, as well as meet the needs of area employers.
