Anthony Scinta

Executive Vice Provost

Nevada State College

Dr. Tony Scinta is the Executive Vice Provost at Nevada State College. Dr. Scinta has invested heavily in efforts designed to improve instruction, enhance student support services, refine curricula, and generally advance the fortunes of the college's largely non-traditional, under-served student population. He has assisted with the creation of strategic plans for the entire campus and the School of Liberal Arts & Sciences, led institutional accreditation efforts as the liaison to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, promoted the growth of the college through structured enrollment management, and guided the development of college-wide academic programs, including the Gateways to Completion program run in conjunction with the John N. Gardner Institute.
In his current role, Dr. Scinta is contributing to the college's drive to increase student retention and graduation rates. To this end, much of his time is invested in student success initiatives, the successful integration of academic and student affairs, and an examination of how data-driven decisions and the application of effective technologies can promote improved student and institutional outcomes.
Prior to beginning his career at NSC, Dr. Scinta earned his Ph.D. from the social psychology program at the University of California, Los Angeles and spent two years as a visiting professor at Williams College. In his nearly 11 years at Nevada State College, Dr. Scinta has served as an associate professor of psychology, the Department Chair of Social Sciences, the Associate Dean of Liberal Arts & Sciences, and his current role as executive vice provost.

What interests you?

15 to Finish

Boost the number of students who are on track for on-time graduation by encouraging enrollment in 15 credits each semester (30 credits per year, including summers). Financial aid dollars, as well as institutional process and practice, should support that standard.

Math Pathways

Ensure all students enroll in and complete gateway math in their first year by designing math courses that are aligned with the skills students need for their chosen program of study.

Corequisite Support

Increase gateway course completion within the first year by enrolling entering students into the college-level math and English courses, providing those who need additional help a concurrent course or lab that offers just-in-time academic support.

Momentum Year

Build momentum so students meet first-year benchmarks: informed choice of meta major or major, enrollment in 30 credits with nine in the program of study and completion of gateway courses. Provide early support and guidance for decision making, using interest assessments and labor-market data.

Academic Maps with Proactive Advising

Default students onto highly-structured academic maps that include 15 credits per semester (or 30 per year), indicate milestone and pre-requisite courses, and empower advisors to effectively monitor progress and provide intervention as needed.

A Better Deal for Returning Adults

Increase degree attainment by inviting adult learners back to complete their education, providing a redesigned system that offers accelerated courses, year-round enrollment and predictable schedules. Give credit for prior learning and experience and additional support to help students navigate the system.
