Candidate Statement: I am honored to join the slate of candidates for the Faculty Senate Executive Committee. Since my arrival at OSU I have worked to create awareness of the OSU Libraries' instructional mission and to integrate it in the broader educational mission of the university. I believe in both personal and collective responsibility for changing the things we don't like - be that at a professional or broader societal level - and would work within the EC to encourage faculty towards both. One of my main concerns is to insure that university administration fully consider faculty input in all pertinent decision making.
