Lisa Nicholas has overseen the development of the Tepper Semester—a full-semester immersion experience for drama students in New York City—since 2005. The program grew from the Tepper Center for Careers in Theater at Syracuse University, which launched in 2001 and was also headed by Nicholas.

She recently established a partnership with the Casting Society of America and, in collaboration, they launched the first casting concentration training program in the United States. Nicholas served as cultural liaison for the NYC Architecture program for four years, programming a wide array of cultural site visits in NYC each semester. She is currently the creative director of development for the Araca Project. She is a member of Actors Equity Association and SAG-AFTRA.
