College of Menominee Nation

The Community Technology Center on the Keshena campus of the College of Menominee Nation is designed to provide high-speed internet access for people living in local and surrounding communities. The new facility is located on the College campus at N172 State Highway 47-55 in Keshena.

The center will provide the general public with internet access, on-site use of computer equipment, and a variety of learning opportunities. Programs at the center will include technology-based community education and critically needed community support and job training. This project is made possible through funding received by the College of Menominee Nation from the Broadband Technologies Opportunity Program (BTOP), a Federal initiative under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The initiative is designed to increase broadband access and use by under-served populations in areas with limited internet availability.

The Center is open 6 days a week (except for holidays) for walk-in users and program participants. Patrons will find the following technology-based activities offered concurrently:

Open Lab for general public use

Workshops to meet the needs of all people—regardless of ability or need

Skill building activities including GED, math, reading, andcareer exploration and placement

Certificate/technical diploma job training (using technology equipment)
