The positive impact Rachel has had for our programs and students goes beyond the millions of dollars she has secured for instructional programs and projects. She has written grants and obtained funding to support mental health initiatives, student success initiatives, student equity initiatives, career education initiatives, science and engineering initiatives, as well as many others! Rachel is the connection to local and federal funding sources and her knowledge and expertise have opened the door for concepts to become reality.
