Rachel Champagne joined NTC recently as the assistant director of the newly created Office of Academic Integrity, where she manages the Code of Academic Conduct and Honor Board processes. She also provides outreach and resources to faculty and students to build a culture of academic integrity on campus. As a first-generation student, Rachel earned a B.A. in Psychology and M.S. in Exercise Science (Administration) from McDaniel College and has completed doctoral coursework in Educational Administration and Leadership (Higher Education) at the University of New Orleans. After hurricane Katrina, Rachel came to New Orleans with a group of college students to assist in recovery efforts and she promptly fell in love with the city. This led her to a position at the Newcomb College Institute at Tulane in 2007 and then she served as the assistant director for orientation and parent programs where she coordinated the NOLA Experience program for several years. Rachel has worked in various areas of student life since then with the past six years in student conduct and academic integrity. Most recently, she served as the director of community standards at Sewanee: The University of the South. Rachel enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter exploring south Louisiana and having other adventures when she is not on campus.
