Raleigh - Correction Secretary Mack Jarvis named Nicole Sullivan project director for the department's Futures grant effective Dec. 1.

"Nicole Sullivan has the experience and background to help the department look to the future," Jarvis said. "She has the skills needed to work with our planning team and managers to prepare the department for the demands of the future."

Sullivan joined the Department of Correction in 1992 as a social research assistant, working on the substance abuse evaluation grant with the Office of Research and Planning. In 1994, she became a social research associate with the Criminal Justice Partnership Program. She rejoined the Office of Research and Planning in 1996 as a correctional planner working on the correction Futures project.

Sullivan is a native of Washington, D.C. She graduated from Emory University in 1989 with a bachelor's degree in political science and history. She received a master's degree in public policy from Duke University in 1991. While at Duke, she worked at the Federal Correctional Institution at Butner and developed an interest in correctional issues.

The Futures project has helped correctional managers develop a road map for the department's future direction. "We want to make people aware of the plan and look at our future direction in a wide range of areas from managing offenders to enhancing employee career growth and development," Sullivan said.
