Toni Nicholas

Red Rocks Community College
 Toni Nicholas joined Red Rocks Community College as a full-time History faculty member in 2011 after serving as an adjunct instructor for two years. She received her B.A. in History from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro with a Russian Studies minor and in 2002 she was awarded her Master’s in History from the University of Vermont, specializing in the early Soviet period. Since joining RRCC Toni has introduced several new courses into the curriculum, including Women in World History and The Holocaust and Genocide in the 20th Century. An advocate of student-centered learning, she believes that not all learning needs to take place in a classroom and each semester she can be found organizing multiple activities for her students outside of the classroom including participation in volunteer activities, bringing guest speakers to campus, participating in open forums, and hosting film screenings on relevant topics. A passionate believer in the benefits of service learning, she was a driving force behind the creation of RRCC’s new Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning and is currently serving as co-coordinator of the Center. She spends most of her free time watching her kids’ sporting events and teaching them to be thoughtful and empathetic change makers, although she looks forward to one day having the time again to read her ever-growing mountain of books.
