Nicole Trufant Found Family, Purpose and Growth as CBO at UNE

Nicole Trufant serves as vice president of finance and administration for University of New England. It’s one of the fastest growing schools in the country, recently opening three new colleges, growing 40 percent online presence, and a new extension campus in Tangiers, Morocco. “I have experienced every emotion… except for boredom,” she says.

Unlike so many of our CBO guests, Trufant says she has education in her blood. She comes from a family of teachers. And her grandfather? He served as custodian at her own institution!

This week on the show, Trufant shares her story of navigating higher ed, mentorship, and promotion and learning the ropes of such a diverse role.
