TMCC Workforce Development

J. Kyle Dalpe, Ph.D., has gained insight into the changes occurring in Nevada’s emerging workforce brought about by Tesla Motors and other new-to-the-region companies through his leadership positions at Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) as well his involvement in the state legislative sessions. During the 2017 legislative session, he helped support expanded state funding for career and technical education and assisted with authoring Senate Bill 391, which established the Nevada Promise Scholarship Program for community college students. 

Dr. Dalpe has held several executive posts at TMCC since 2002. He is currently serving as the Interim Dean of Technical Sciences, heading the applied tech programs — robotics, advanced manufacturing, welding, machining, HVAC, unmanned aerial systems, diesel and automotive — and initiating industry partnerships including the Panasonic Preferred Pathway (P3) program. He regularly works with major companies to develop training options to meet the needs of the region.

From 2013-2016 he served as Associate Dean, Chief of Staff, and in spring 2016, was appointed Acting President during a transitional period in college administration. Dr. Dalpe also served as the Director of Institutional Advancement and Public Information, where he helped initiate and implement a $25 million fundraising campaign to support college initiatives during the recession.

He teaches graduate classes in educational leadership at the University of Nevada, Reno. Organizations in the community have sought him out for training new employees during onboarding, addressing topics such as communications and management of a multi-generational workforce.

Prior to joining TMCC, he served the Director of Marketing and Public Information at Mohave Community College in Kingman, Arizona; Coordinator of University Publications at the University of Texas at Tyler; and an instructor and photographer at Kilgore Junior College, Kilgore, Texas.


Dalpe earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in photojournalism from the University of Connecticut; a Master of Arts Degree in Journalism, Speech, and Political Science from the University of Texas at Tyler; and a Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Update on our Current Projects

In the past year, our club has donated $155,000+ and hundreds of volunteer hours. 

Members of our club volunteer quarterly at the Northern Nevada Food Bank. (Sept. 2017)

From July 2015 to June 2016, our club gave out $94,000+ to various projects in our local community, including $21,000 to Lemelson STEM Academy (Title 1 elementary school), and $40,000 in higher ed and vocational scholarships, with the remainder to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, science fairs, RYLA and exchange students, and awards for teachers and law enforcement.
Reno High Interact members, Rotary club members, and community volunteers planted 15,000 flower bulbs near our downtown Reno Rotary Sculpture Garden over two workdays. The bulbs will bring beauty to our city this Spring, and every Spring. (Sept. 2017)
INTERNATIONAL IMPACT - We gave out $61,000+ to 7 projects around the world, including: 
- Our club, with support from other Rotary clubs, is undertaking a major project for an orphanage for disabled children in Panama. 

NEPAL - The Cow Farm Project, has produced milk sales revenue of almost $600 to date. Profits from the project will help sustain BTF’s maternal/child wellness and education efforts in the remote Humla District of northern Nepal. They will conduct two 5-day Safe Motherhood classes in November educating a total of 50 women.
