Nichole S. Prescott

Dr. Nichole S. Prescott is a proud citizen of the Miami Nation of Oklahoma (Myaamia) and actively participates in the culture and language revitalization efforts of her people. Born in an Indian Hospital in Oklahoma, Dr. Prescott was raised on the Texas/Mexico border before she moved to Austin to pursue a college degree at The University of Texas as a first-generation college student. While Austin is her home, Dr. Prescott has maintained a strong engagement with the broader Native American community, currently serving on the Governing Council of the National Institute for Native Leadership in Higher Education and as a Director, Secretary, and Vice-Chair of the Donor Relations and Stewardship Committee of the Miami University Foundation Board (a university situated on lands historically occupied by Myaamiaki), and formerly serving on the Board of Directors of the American Indians of Texas.  She is a fierce supporter of the Myaamia Center, a tribally-driven language and culture research center situated at Miami University. Dr. Prescott currently serves as Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Texas System. Equity-minded in her work, she targets historic inequities and systemic racism, including opportunity and achievement gaps for minoritized student populations.
