Midwest Transportation Workforce Center

The Midwest Transportation Workforce Center (MTWC) works to advance a Midwest Strategy for talent within the transportation sector. The MTWC is a regional surface transportation workforce center funded by the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The center is located at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The MTWC region encompasses the nine Midwestern states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

Our staff works with industry, educators, and government to generate and share innovative approaches to attracting, retaining, and developing a diverse transportation workforce. Our scope is broad as it encompasses occupations that plan, design, build, and maintain our transportation infrastructure and systems as well as occupations that facilitate the transportation of goods and people.

The MTWC leverages its network to promote exemplary practices in the areas of career awareness, career pathways, and stackable credentials in high-skilled, high-demand, high-wage occupations. MTWC partners with other networks to align talent development efforts. 

Our website and our social media presence serve as a portal for transportation resources in the Midwest.
