Nireata Seals, Ed.D.

Vice President of Student Affairs & Associate Provost, LaGuardia Community College

Nireata Seals felt a strong personal and professional connection to Comprehensive Youth Development, which drew her to the Board. The Board role resonated with her focus on higher education and fostering youth experience. “As a first-generation college student, I understand the role advisors, mentors, and sponsors play in providing information and support for a student’s education and personal success. These resources have been instrumentation in my own educational and career advancement. Sometimes you just need someone to show you how a process works, or you need to see people who look like you being successful to know that you can be successful also.”

Nireata has worked as a higher education administrator for the past 28 years and is currently the Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Affairs at LaGuardia Community College where she works to support faculty pedagogy and student success. She joined the Board in 2019 and looks forward to using her network to build upon the existing structure of resources and services for Comprehensive Youth Development students.
