Tiffany Skouby named new State Director of Student Life at NC Community College System

Tiffany Skouby, Director of Student Engagement at Piedmont Community College, has been named the new State Director of Student Life at the North Carolina Community College System.  
Skouby, a graduate of the community college system, completed an associate degree from Durham Technical Community College in 2012 before enrolling in the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She later earned a master’s degree in education from Western Governors University.  
In her new role, Skouby will oversee student life programs across the state, aiming to enhance student engagement and success within the community college system. 

“I know how vital student life can be for our students inside and outside of the classroom and I want to be that change maker that continues to help all 58 community colleges grow in this area,” Skouby said. “I think one of the most important words in my title of State Director of Student Life is ‘student’, so I want to make sure that in everything we do, we are serving our students.”  
In addition to her role at Piedmont, she is an Equity Coach and the Student Government Association (SGA) advisor. Her previous roles included working in multicultural affairs, first year experience programs, adult student experiences, athletics, student activities, and conducting leadership training. 
During her tenure at Piedmont Community College, Skouby demonstrated exceptional leadership in student affairs, notably advising the SGA. Her guidance led the College’s SGA to win the North Carolina Comprehensive Community College Student Government Association (N4CSGA) “Top C” campus award in both 2020 and 2024. 

In September 2020, she stepped into an advisor role for the N4CSGA and served as Senior Advisor until June 2023. 

“I feel the roles I have had all prepared me for this position. I knew if I didn’t apply, I would miss out on an opportunity to make a bigger impact for our students,” she said. 

Skouby said a few of her priorities in the first year include creating stronger connections between students and Student Life staff, increasing resources for basic needs, and bringing back the Student Life Advisory Board.  
“We are excited to have Tiffany join the student services team,” said Dr. James “J.W.” Kelley, Associate Vice President of Student Services at the System Office. “Her passion for students is contagious and inspires others toward service. Her leadership will help us take the next step in serving the students at the Extraordinary 58.” 

Skouby will join the System Office on May 28.
