NIC vice president of instruction announces plans to leave NIC
North Idaho College Vice President of Instruction Jerry Gee announced Tuesday his plans to leave NIC after nearly 14 years in his position. His departure will be effective Jan. 31, 2006.

Gee plans to begin working as a consultant with an emphasis on community college education with MGT of America, a national public sector consulting firm.
Gee started at NIC in 1992 after working as the associate dean of instruction at Dodge City Community College in Kansas for 14 years. He served as a faculty member in the agriculture department for nine years prior to his service as a dean.
At NIC, Gee oversees the college’s instructional programs, which includes academic and professional-technical programs and NIC workforce training.
During his time as vice president of instruction, Gee helped increase the number of programs offered through the college, increased the number of full-time faculty to keep pace with the growth of the institution and helped develop and expand distance education, workforce training and NIC’s outreach sites throughout the five northern counties of Idaho, among other accomplishments.
“I believe I’ve helped make some positive changes during my time at NIC,” Gee said. “But the part about my job that I enjoyed the most was working with a great group of people.”
NIC is expected to name an interim replacement soon, then will undertake a national search with a goal to fill the vice president of instruction position by the start of the college’s fiscal year July 1, 2006. For More Information
