Candidate Statement: Universities are the leaders in knowledge creation and innovation, potentially creating local and global-oriented jobs. And yet there is a lack of support amongst the legislature and general public for funding of higher education. Priority should be given to how OSU and Oregonians are preparing for the global economy. I would like to work with the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate to work on advocacy with the legislature and the general public as well as collaborate with students, faculty and staff to work toward responding to future challenges faced by OSU.
