Student Success Coordinator
Office: Saint Mary 412
Nick Cale started his career at USM in 2012 as an Academic Resource Center (ARC) Mentor, and now serves as a Student Success Coordinator.
He received his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City as an Honors Scholar and Magna Cum Laude in 2011. Nick went on to work for the Kansas City Area Education Research Consortium, which examines adolescent transitions from high school to college, as a Research Assistant. Additionally, Nick has guest lectured for several classes, assisted in the Summer Treatment Program for children with ADHD as a Developmental Medical Professional for Children’s Mercy Hospital, and most recently worked as a Cognitive Therapist for individuals suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
Nick has always been committed to student success, serving on the Honors Student Advisory Committee and as Co-President for the UMKC Honors Program. He completed his own research study investigating test anxiety in undergraduate college students — which won multiple awards at professional conferences — and has published his findings.
Here at USM, Nick plans to continue devoting his time to students, whether it be through assessment and data analysis, one-on-one meetings with students, or interdepartmental collaboration. Whatever the case may be, Nick is always available for help.
