Namaste!

It turns out you can go home again – I have recently found my way back to Northern Colorado and back to the McNair Scholars program.

I was born and raised in Loveland, completed my undergraduate degree in economics at Colorado College, and pursued my graduate work in public policy and political economy at Claremont Graduate School in Southern California.

I have spent my professional career fostering student success, from directing academic support centers to helping students find colleges that will fully develop each student’s potential. While in Claremont, I had the opportunity to work with diverse populations by developing and delivering many programs for students including McNair Scholars.

As an instructor, I strive to cultivate an interactive environment where students can express themselves freely while learning to engage ideas in meaningful ways.  My goal is not only to promote students’ intellectual engagement with their topics but also to help them become more discerning observers and analytical thinkers about the world. In addition, I attempt to incorporate opportunities for the one-on-one instruction inherent in writing center work because I believe these personalized interactions can stimulate great leaps in students’ development as writers and thinkers. More than anything, I aim to help students develop robust analytical and rhetorical skills that can transfer to any discipline or situation.

Please stop by my office or drop me a note if you have any questions or just want to chat.

Hello!

I first joined the UNC community as a student pursuing my Master of Music in music education. Since that time, I have continued to integrate myself into the UNC community, joining the Educational Psychology doctoral program and working in a number of capacities around campus, including serving as a Teaching Assistant in the Psychology Department and as a Graduate Assistant for the ASA Tutoring Center. My own research interests include experiential learning, transformative learning experiences, and program evaluation as related to individuals' learning and development. Ultimately, I strive to help individuals form meaningful connections while facilitating academic, professional, and personal development and encouraging a passion for lifelong learning. I am very excited to now join the McNair Scholars Program and work with students as they embark on the research journey and explore possibilities for graduate studies.

My name is Rachel Haug and I am the new Graduate Assistant for the McNair Scholars Program. I am a second year student in the Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program here at UNC. I have personal interests in gender and sexuality concerns, along with women's health. I am thrilled to be a recent addition to the McNair Scholars Program because I enjoy supporting individuals as they navigate through new territory in life or in academia. I love seeing the McNair Scholars succeed in moving closer to their personal goals, especially after all of their hard work. Perhaps I will learn more from the McNair Scholars than they will learn from me. I am excited to see how everything will unfold!
