In her role, she conducted a variety of training opportunities for North Carolina colleges on Title IX, the Clery Act, Violence Against Women Act and Campus SaVE. Additionally, she has advised several campuses and organizations on policies and procedures related to Title IX issues.

“Chappell has been described by her peers as the ‘guru of Title IX regulation’ in the state,” Vice Chancellor and Chief of Staff Bonita Brown said. “Her network of Title IX coordinators and experts will greatly serve the Title IX Office and the UNCG community as we move forward in incorporating this office and its services into our campus culture.” Brown noted that Chappell joining UNCG will support the university’s compliance with federal mandates.

At North Carolina Central Law School, Chappell gained experience talking with victims and working with evidence. This included internships with a Forsyth County District Attorney’s Office crime team, Person and Caswell County District Attorneys Offices, Warwick, Rhode Island, Police Department and Montgomery County, Maryland, Office of the Public Defender, and the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension subcommittee.
