Shown L-R:Dr. Christopher Markwood, Provost and Vice Chancellor UW-Superior, Dr. Julius Erlenbach UW-Superior Chancellor, Dr. Bob Meyer, WITC President, and Laura Wassenaar, WITC divisional dean of Family & Consumer Services.

A transfer articulation agreement initiated by Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Superior has resulted in the official signing of a transfer articulation agreement between UW-Superior and the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). 

 This articulation agreement will provide an “educational bridge” for students who obtained an Early Childhood associate degree from a college in the WTCS to transfer credits into the UW-Superior system.

WITC Divisional Dean, Family & Consumer Services, Laura Wassenaar explains, “The WTCS Early Childhood associate degree curriculum meets the essential requirements for the UW-Superior Early Childhood minor and may also meet other requirements needed to earn a BS in Elementary Education.” This agreement will benefit any student who graduates from the Early Childhood Education program in the Wisconsin Technical College System who chooses to build on their associate degree by pursuing an Elementary Education major / Early Childhood minor at UW-Superior.

 This articulation agreement comes after many years of effort by both colleges to enter into a partnership that would benefit ECE students. At the official signing of the articulation agreement attended by representatives from UW-Superior and WITC, Dr. Christopher Markwood, provost and vice chancellor of UW-Superior stated, “This agreement is really about students. It’s a big step for our students, your students and all the students in the community.”

 Dr. Bob Meyer, WITC President sees this partnership as a way the two colleges can foster an ongoing relationship that will benefit the community. Meyer states, “I’d like to thank all the faculty and staff involved in this process. This agreement is a milestone in our relationship with UW-Superior. I hope we will have many more to come. This agreement is good for the citizens of our community.”

 Dr. Julius Erlenbach ,UW-Superior chancellor, echoed these sentiments adding, “I’m delighted this agreement is making our relationship stronger.”
