President’s Priority Statements and Strategic Directions
Dear Pittsburgh Technical College Alumni:
As the new President of Pittsburgh Technical College, I’m writing to you during a time of great excitement and expectation for our college as we set future priorities. As I get to know our students who are hard at work in classrooms, labs, and internships and the faculty who propel them forward, I also think of our alumni who came before them and helped to build the success and reputation of PTC. That’s why I wanted to provide a sense of what we’re planning for the future.
Having a vision and clear priorities will help us achieve our goals, and our priorities will serve as a launching pad to the next chapter of the PTC story.
“In continuation of PTC’s history of experiential learning, the quality and alignment of our academic and workforce programs will remain central to our mission.”
“Most importantly, we will remain committed to our students’ success, achievement, and to connecting our graduates to high-demand fields.”
- Educator of choice: PTC will be an educator of choice for technical education and careers of the future as programs are explored and expanded.
- Pipeline for middle skills: PTC will develop and train a personnel pipeline for filling middle skills jobs through industry partnerships and career pathways.
- Fuel economic development: PTC will fuel economic development through regional, national, and international workforce development and training.
These strategies will strengthen our reputation as a higher standard. Part of the plan includes greater visibility in the community, with an eye towards building new alliances with employers, alumni, education and workforce leaders, and the media.
I welcome you to join me as PTC evolves to meet new opportunities and challenges. Please watch for ways to connect with me and my team.
In the meantime, if you’re attending Oktoberfest on Friday, October 11, please introduce yourself. I sincerely look forward to meeting and working with you.
