Candidate Statement: I’ve been at OSU since 1993 and in that time I have witnessed over and over the results that groups of dedicated people working together can produce. As we yet again face budget challenges, I strongly believe that the Faculty Senate can offer critical insights to OSU leadership and to the broader campus. I believe that an institution that is focused on the learning environment generates possibility for creating conditions of engagement for our students, staff, and faculty. I also believe that the broad governance of the senate is key for producing new thinking and creative solutions for the days before us.
