Our President

Welcome to one of the most successful colleges in the state of Kansas!

IMG_880512-copyFor over half a century, Northwest Tech has been a leader in offering relevant, timely and in-demand technical education to our students. As a college fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association and numerous program-level accreditations, students can know with certainty they are receiving a top-notch education!

Upon completion of their program of study, our graduates are prepared to enter the workforce and head directly into high-demand and high-wage careers.  Our faculty members are among the best and have come to us with real-world experience in business and industry. They do not just teach material out of a book; they have lived it. Their talents and skills provide a priceless experience and ensure Northwest Tech students have an industry-proven and quality hands-on education.

Northwest Tech is the only publicly funded technical college in the state to offer the full college experience. With campus housing, 16 academic programs, 10 athletic programs, service learning opportunities and a host of student life experiences we are an excellent choice for students looking to experience all that college has to offer!

We have a longstanding philosophy of “Head, Hand and Heart”.  As part of this way of thinking, we expect our students to be smart, work hard and do the right thing.  When our students enter the workforce, we prepare them to be difference makers and critical thinkers. We expect them to be good citizens and engage in the development of their community; both while students at Northwest Tech and wherever they chose to start their careers.

At Northwest Tech, we are about more than just teaching students; we are about changing lives and changing communities. Whether you are a prospective student, community member, friend of the college, or an alumnus, we hope you will join us on this journey!
