Beyond higher education my past career experiences range from city/state government, finance management, human resources, and K-12 education. Nuchelle is a North Carolinian at heart she and her family are adjusting well and look forward to this new adventure.
Nuchelle attended the University of North Carolina at Pembroke for her Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Mass Communications and Fayetteville State University for my Masters in Experimental Psychology.

Ting collaborates with faculty in analyzing the needs for the courses, establishing objectives for learning, creating effective, efficient and engaging learning activities, and selecting the appropriate assessment methods.
Before joining FHSU, Ting was a doctoral students in Southern Illinois University, during which he also provided instructional design and training services for faculty in his department. Ting’s research interests are learning theories, integration of technology, and digital game-based learning. For his dissertation, he developed a digital game that taught local residents how to prepare for tornados. Ting defended his dissertation on October 4th, 2018.
Ting is a Star Wars fan, and is very skillful in driving in extreme weather, possibly due to “the force is strong with this one”.
