Nicole Eversmann was elected to the Austin Community College District Board of Trustees in November 2016. The six-year term will end in 2022. When elected, she was the first ACC student to serve on the board. Nicole attended ACC beginning fall of 2013 and graduated in May 2017 with an Associate of Arts Degree in General Studies. Next she transferred to the University of Texas at Austin and completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Government with a minor in Educational Psychology. Currently Nicole is a graduate student at The LBJ School of Public Affairs and an intern at the Texas Education Agency in the College, Career, and Military Preparation Division.
Nicole’s background includes employment as a presenter for the ACC Honors Program, as a pharmacy technician, as an administrator with a sales and marketing brokerage firm, and as an intern with the Austin Independent School District Construction Management Department.
During the summer of 2018, Nicole held an internship position in Washington, DC within the Library of Congress. She worked in the Operations Division of the US Copyright Office as a Management and Planning Intern to assist with the development of the Office’s strategic plan. While temporarily residing in DC, Nicole remained active as an ACC Board member by attending meetings electronically.
Before joining the Board, Nicole was most proud of her work as a member of the ACC Futures Institute, a research and brainstorming team tasked with determining recommendations for if and how ACC can transition to the guided pathways model outlined in the book “Redesigning America’s Community Colleges,” written by Thomas A. Bailey, Shanna Smith Jaggars, and Davis Jenkins.
In June 2019, Nicole was elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Community College Association of Texas Trustees (CCATT). Her position is designated to represent very large-sized colleges for a two-year term ending in June 2021.
