Tusculum’s President Nancy Moody completes term as head of Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association
Tusculum College President Dr. Nancy B. Moody will complete her term as chair of the Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association (TICUA) Executive Committee in February.
Moody took over the role in April 2008 and will completed her term in office at the February 2010 meeting.
TICUA engages Tennessee’s private colleges and universities to work collaboratively in areas of public policy, cost containment and professional development to better serve the state and its citizens. As chair, Moody led the organization’s executive committee, convened and presided over TICUA board meetings and the Nashville-based organization’s annual meeting.
“Under Dr. Moody’s leadership TICUA has become one of the state’s most respected leaders in higher education policy. During her tenure as Chair of TICUA, students attending Tennessee’s private colleges have benefited from more than $120 million in state funded student aid,” TICUA President Dr. Claude Pressnell stated.
“Her passion for helping students and advancing the cause of independent higher education was a driving force behind her success,” Pressnell added.
Moody is the 27th president of Tusculum College and the College’s first female president. As president, she continues a tradition of genuine care and concern for small, private school educational opportunities for students. Moody is also a strong supporter of educational programs for working adults and a strong advocate of Tusculum College’s civic arts program.
In addition to her active role with TICUA, Moody currently serves on the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation Board of Directors and is a member of the NCAA Division II President’s Council. She is an active participant on the boards of the Appalachian Colleges Association and the Tennessee Center for Nursing, Inc.
Moody received associate and baccalaureate degrees in nursing from Eastern Kentucky University, a master’s of science in nursing from Texas Woman’s University and a doctorate of science in nursing from the University of Alabama’s School of Nursing at Birmingham.
She is married to Tom Moody, a self-employed public accountant. She and Tom are the proud parents of grown children, daughter, Mykel, and son, Adam.
