At noon on Sunday, May 19, Milwaukee Area Technical College will host its 2024 Spring Commencement at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

More than 1,500 students will receive their associate degrees, technical diplomas, apprenticeship diplomas and adult high school diplomas. In addition, 25 candidates for graduation who have served in the U.S. military will receive red, white and blue cords from the college.

This commencement ceremony is the final for MATC President Dr. Vicki J. Martin, who is retiring from the college at the end of June. “As I reflect on my professional career that spans over 40 years, I feel gratitude for the opportunities and lessons learned,” said Dr. Martin. “One of those that is most meaningful to me is the creation of Wisconsin’s first free-tuition Promise program. More than 600 students have graduated thanks to the MATC Promise scholarship.”
