President's Updates

As part of the work of the President’s Office, regular newsletters are prepared and sent out to share the latest news, updates, note-worthy events and initiatives that are happening at NIC.

One of NIC’s strengths and challenges is the large geographic area we serve and our ability to be responsive to the needs of our communities. Providing regular updates to all faculty, support staff and the administration team allows us to celebrate the great work that’s being done across our campuses.
