   Rebecca Nickoli, Ed.D.
   NCWE Consultant




At the time of her retirement from full-time employment in 2014, Rebecca Nickoli was serving as statewide Vice President for the Corporate College and Grants Administration at the system-wide office of Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana.

While at the College’s system office (1995-2014), she led efforts in the development of faculty policy including the move to a system of faculty rank and promotion; development of the College’s libraries; assessment of student learning; and system-wide development of the College’s distance learning efforts. In addition, Nickoli coordinated the past two ten-year system-wide accreditation self-studies (in 1998 and 2009) with the Higher Learning Commission. In earlier years, she served in a variety of Student Affairs positions at the Richmond campus and as head of the Logansport campus.

From 2014 through 2017, Nickoli served as Coordinator for the Community College Workforce Consortium (CCWC). It was initially based at Macomb Community College in Warren, Michigan, and then moved administratively to Jobs for the Future (JFF) in Boston. She worked on other consulting projects with JFF including work with two apprenticeship grants, along with providing technical assistance to recipients of Department of Labor TAACCCT grants.

Nickoli has been a peer reviewer and team chair for the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for 17 years and a member of HLC’s Institutional Actions Council until December 2017. She is a past-president for the National Council of Workforce Education (NCWE), continues to serve as a member of that board, and served in 2012-13 on AACC’s Workforce and Economic Development Commission. Nickoli formerly chaired the Joyce Foundation’s “Shifting Gears in Indiana” initiative and was appointed by then-Governor Mitch Daniels to the Indiana State Workforce Investment Council (SWIC). Nickoli also served on the advisory council for the Indiana “Skills2Compete” program which identifies, promotes, and supports legislative efforts for middle-skills jobs in Indiana. She continues to provide consultation in workforce education and assistance with grants implementation through the NCWE. In 2017-18, she co-facilitated the first cohort of the NCWE New Professionals Academy. In addition, Nickoli has provided assistance to several colleges with their preparation for HLC visits and reports.

Dr. Nickoli holds an Educational Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instructional Planning from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, and a doctorate in Educational Administration from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. She is a frequent speaker and subject matter expert on workforce development, accreditation, and prior learning assessment.
