S. Nicole Jones

Transition Advising Coordinator


As the transition advising coordinator, Nicole coordinates the transition advising processes for the Academic and Career Exploration (ACE) team and advises undergraduate students who have decided on a major but are not yet eligible to declare. She also helps undecided and re-deciding undergraduates explore majors that better align with their values, interests, and personality. In addition, Nicole is a third-year Ph.D. student in the Educational Psychology & Research: Evaluation, Statistics, and Methodology program at UT and her current research interests include survey research, mixed-methods research, program evaluation, data visualization, green behavior, and personality and career fit. Nicole has worked with the UT system for 6 years and has over 12 years of experience in advising college students. Ever the introvert, Nicole enjoys reading fiction, watching documentaries and independent films, learning new things, and relaxing at home with her dogs; she also has a strong appreciation for satire and dark humor.
