South Campus scouts assistance for marketing campaign

Madison College’s South Campus seeks volunteers to market for their new campaign beginning Monday, July 10, and continuing throughout the month. Participants will visit business and community centers and do door-to-door canvassing. Anyone who is able to assist will receive a free t-shirt. Sign up here.

Last year, the Madison College District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to expand our services within the greater south Madison area designated by the 53711, 53713 and 53719 ZIP codes. This expansion will help lay the foundation for a new, comprehensive South Campus, which is scheduled to open within the next couple of years. Increasing enrollments at the current Park Street Campus is a critical first step of the long-term plan.

Questions? Please contact Tina Ahedo, South and Downtown Campus associate dean.

Vet Tech to transition to School of Health Education

Effective July 1, support of the Veterinary Technician program will shift from the School of Applied Science, Engineering and Technology (ASET) to the School of Health Education (SoHE).

The transition might affect work and/or systems established in the context of Vet Tech or ASET. It could also affect future work and systems in the new context of Vet Tech and/or the SoHE. 

If you’re aware of any adjustments needed by SoHE or by ASET, send that information to Sandy Docter, associate dean School of Health Education.
