Districts Mutual Insurance (DMI), a Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) insurance carrier and risk management company, has made a donation of $10,000 to the Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) Foundation. MSTC Vice President of Finance Nelson Dahl, on behalf of DMI executives, presented an oversized check to MSTC Foundation Board President Greg Krings during the Board’s regularly scheduled meeting Wednesday. The funds are unrestricted, meaning the Foundation has the ability to designate to the highest areas of student need.
Each Wisconsin technical college will receive a check in the same amount for a total contribution of $160,000, the company announced at its October quarterly meeting.
“This donation commemorates our 10th year of operations and also serves as a tangible benefit of being a member of DMI—a company whose primary focus is on the needs of its members,” said DMI Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Steven Stoeger-Moore.
MSTC, one of 16 colleges in the WTCS, offers more than 100 associate degrees, technical diplomas, and certificates. Student-focused and community-based, MSTC serves a resident population of approximately 165,000 in central Wisconsin with campuses in Marshfield, Stevens Point, and Wisconsin Rapids, and a learning center in Adams. Nearly 9 in 10 MSTC graduates are employed within six months of graduation.
DMI was established in 2004 to provide a range of commercial insurance coverages to meet the unique needs of the 16 Wisconsin technical college districts. DMI provides a menu of insurance and risk management services and solutions to address the multiple exposures created by the delivery of vocational, technical, and adult education.
