WITC gets high marks from report
Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College’s results from the 2014 Noel Levitz

Satisfaction Inventory (SSI), a nationally recognized student priority and
satisfaction survey. The SSI provides academic institutions the ability to
measure student satisfaction and priorities. WITC participates in the
Noel-Levitz SSI every other year.
WITC students in 2014 express greater satisfaction
compared to both the national results and the 2012 results. Based on student
responses compared to other institutions, focus areas such as institutional
effectiveness, academic advising/counseling, and campus climate among several
others, were cited as strengths for the college. WITC also scored highly in
admissions and financial aid, academic services, and campus support services.

most important to our students, measures how well we meet their expectations and
then compares their opinions with those of students attending other national
colleges and Wisconsin technical colleges,” said Jennifer Kunselman, research
and data coordinator at WITC.
When asked if they would enroll again at WITC, 87 percent
of students said they would and 76 percent reported being satisfied or very
satisfied with their WITC experience.
The SSI reflects the candid opinions of current students
on topics critical to college choice and satisfaction such as academic advising,
instructional effectiveness, campus safety and security, and student
centeredness. The complete survey is
