The Northwestern Michigan College Board of Trustees unanimously approved a two-year contract for new school president Nick Nissley Monday.

“We are extremely pleased to conclude our comprehensive and transparent presidential search by officially welcoming Dr. Nissley to NMC,” said board chair Chris Bott via press release. “Dr. Nissley’s proven experience in leadership and innovation make him the right leader to take our community’s college forward.”

Nissley has over 25 years experience in education, including leading the School for Creative & Performing Arts in Cincinatti since 2015. 

He will officially take over in January 2020.

The Board of Trustees also voted unanimously today to approve a new three year collective bargaining agreement with the NMC Faculty Association affiliates.

As part of the agreement employees will receive salary increases, a revised hiring process that considers education and relevant work experience and a clearer faculty evaluation process.
