Northcentral Technical College President Lori Weyers announced she will retire on June 30 after 15 years with the school. 

She made the announcement during a board of trustees meeting in January.

Weyers began her tenure as NTC president July 1, 2006, and has served the Wisconsin Technical College System for 42 years. 

Prior to coming to NTC, she served as the vice president for learning at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and as executive dean, dean, coordinator and faculty member at Fox Valley Technical College. 

She earned her bachelor’s degree in psy

chology and behavioral disabilities, a master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling/ administration and her Ph.D. in educational leadership and policy analysis from the University of WisconsinMadison.

Under her leadership, NTC grew its enrollment substantially while building collaborative partnerships with K12 Districts, local businesses and community organizations. 

Weyers established Centers of Excellence

that positioned the college as a major driver in the sectors of manufacturing, health, business, public safety, agriculture, woods and transportation.

Her commitment to learners opened educational pathways through the expansion of transfer partnerships and the establishment of the college’s nationally recognized Virtual College. 

“Serving as NTC’s president has been the most rewarding, fulfilling role of my 42 year career in higher education,” Weyers said. "We have accomplished so much but none of it would have been possible without the amazing support of our leadership team, staff and faculty.”

An internal search for the next president of NTC will be conducted by an ad hoc recruitment group including the board chair, vicechair and treasurer. The NTC associate vice president of human resources will assist.

 The board anticipates finalizing and announcing the selection of the new President no later than April. Successful candidates will have diverse experience in various aspects of the College, including a commitment to students, employees and community partnerships with an emphasis on strong fiscal policy
