Nicolet College Named a 2021 Most Promising Place to Work

most promising places to work award for 2021

We are pleased to announce that the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education (Diverse) have selected Nicolet as one the 2021 Most Promising Places to Work in Community Colleges (PPWCC).

The annual award recognizes community and technical college commitments to diversity through best-in-class student and staff recruitment and retention practices, inclusive learning and working environments, and meaningful community service and engagement opportunities. The national study employs a web-based survey approach to obtain information from NISOD member institutions. A multipart, weighted algorithm is used to classify the responding institutions.

We Celebrate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Nicolet, we celebrate cultural diversity in our rural community by providing an inclusive community for students and employees to explore their own and other cultures, and to participate in activities geared toward making connections at Nicolet and in the world beyond. The Nicolet College Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is a cross-functional group of people who work to embrace and promote our differences in order to cultivate an atmosphere of social equity and civility.

Work in the Beautiful Northwoods

Although this video was created for students, we invite you to take a virtual tour of Nicolet to better understand our educational offerings and get a feel for our campus located in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.

There are seven academic buildings nestled among 280 acres of natural forest along the shores of beautiful Lake Julia. You’ll be able to enjoy this beauty on a daily basis; walking among the fall leaves, watching the snow gently fall outside your window, catching lunch with co-workers by the lake. It all adds to the experience of being part of the Nicolet College community.


“With my love for the outdoors, I always knew I wanted to pursue my career in the Northwoods surrounded by trails and recreation. Working at Nicolet College has given me that opportunity! Nicolet has encouraged me to grow in my field, learn new skills, and pursue my passions within and outside of my career. The support and encouragement the College provides to its employees is absolutely wonderful.”

Niina Baum, Social Media Strategist
