SLCC names Nancy Michalko to top development post

Salt Lake Community College has named Nancy Michalko as the school’s new executive director of development. Michalko will head SLCC’s fundraising efforts, benefitting areas like scholarships and facilities.

“Nancy joins SLCC with deep development experience and an attitude of excellence,” said SLCC vice president of institutional advancement Alison McFarlane. “She is poised to engage the College's present and future donors and move the College's development office to new heights.”

Michalko brings to the job 27 years of development experience that includes posts at Westminster College, State University of New York and Yale University. Most recently she was the scholarship advisor for Park City High School, during which time she steered many students to a successful start in college at SLCC.

“There’s no question that every single person I ask about Salt Lake Community College talks about the quality of the professors and teachers and their love for the teachers they’ve had here,” Michalko said. “They make personal relationships with these kids. So, that’s been very impressive.”

Michalko is a graduate of Wheeling Jesuit University with a bachelor degree in public relations and marketing. A native of West Virginia, Michalko is a member of Council for Advancement and Support of Education and is a past president of the Utah Society of Fund Raisers. She and her husband have two children, one of whom graduated from SLCC and then from the University of Utah with a double major.
