Candidate Statement: I am honored, and indeed excited, to be asked to run for this committee. Serving on the EC would capitalize on my passions for active participation in representative/shared governance and avocation for the well-being of the faculty and students at OSU. My unique background contributes to my strong understanding of some of the very difficult issues we will be faced with in the next biennium including budgeting, benefits, and even assessment. I welcome diverse perspectives, and am willing to commit the time and energy necessary to represent the democratic values of the Faculty Senate. Thank you.
