Rachelle Feldman is currently the Associate Provost and Director of Financial Aid at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  A native of Washington, DC, she spent most of her adult life in Berkeley, California where, after an all too brief modern dance career, she entered the always dynamic and fascinating world of financial aid at the University of California, Berkeley, eventually earning the role of director. While at Berkeley, she developed and implemented BEAR$ for Student Success – a peer-led financial wellness initiative for undergraduate and graduate students.    Rachelle co-founded and co-led the University of California’s system wide Financial Aid Leadership Institute and developed and implemented UC Berkeley’s Middle Class Access Plan.  

She currently holds several national leadership positions including chair of the Coalition of University State Aid Administrators, national board member of NASFAA and executive board member of the Higher Education Loan Coalition.  Rachelle regularly advocates for students at the national level and is passionate about access to higher education and giving all students the full experience and preparation they need to live successful, fulfilling lives after graduation. Rachelle joined the NEFE board in 2019.
