The University of Evansville is welcoming a new addition to its team.

UE said Friday that after a national search, it had selected Rachel Carpenter as the new vice president for student affairs and dean of students.

According to UE, Carpenter will begin her duties with an anticipated start date of June 1, 2022.

The University says that Carpenter brings nearly two decades of experience in student affairs to the table. She is making the move to UE from her current role as the interim university dean for students at Pace University, which has two campuses in Pleasantville and New York City, New York.

While at Pace, Carpenter has been working toward her Doctor of Professional Studies in business and is expected to graduate this month.

The UE campus will be familiar to Carpenter, who graduated with her bachelor's and master's degrees in 2003 and 2009, respectively. From 2003-10, she served in various student-oriented roles on campus.

"As someone who grew up in the military, I have rarely experienced the feeling of returning home," said Carpenter. "I am very excited to return to the UE campus, a place I once called home for several years, and work alongside talented faculty and staff. Together, I know we will move the University forward and prepare students to live meaningful lives in a changing world."

You can read more about Carpenter's new position at UE on the University's website.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
