UNIVERSITY SERVICE: Time and Attendance Steering Committee, 2011-present

Candidate Statement: The state of Oregon and OSU lately faced several economic challenges, which remain at the forefront of concerns for the OSU community (students, classified and non-classified staff, and faculty alike). We, as members and leaders of OSU, have to ensure that this difficult time does not compromise the quality of education, research, and campus life, particularly as the University population continues to grow. It is through shared governance and creative problem solving that we can achieve that goal. I pledge to promote OSU’s leadership in education, research and outreach missions and continue efforts to enhance the well-being of our community.
