Candidate Statement: We are having to adapt quickly to a drastically changing environment caused by the continued shift away from state support. My vision for Faculty Senate is that we must be the voice for maintaining and promoting excellence in our missions--research, instruction and outreach--in the face of desires to see access and cost be primary drivers for change. I have tried to be that kind of voice as both a faculty member and as a department chair, and I would like the Senate to effectively articulate why and how we must advance the quality of what we do.
