LTC Accreditation Timeline


Program Accreditations
Several of LTC's occupational programs are accredited by a professional entity or approved by a State agency.

Process Improvement
The Process Improvement Model empowers cross-functional teams to improve processes, solve problems, and make decisions that impact students, staff, and College operations.

Quality Review Process
The Quality Review Process (QRP) was developed to evaluate educational programs, apprenticeships, basic and general education in the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). This program review process is used for all programs at LTC with evaluation rotation on a five-year cycle. The process includes an in-depth self-study component (qualitative), scorecard analysis (quantitative), and improvement plans.

LTC Philosophy
Quality is inherent in everything we do;
not just a requirement for accreditation.

Quality at LTC
Quality is achieved at LTC through its People, Process, and Plan.
