Candidate Statement: I have a strong interest in public policy and the impact of policies on all citizens and public institutions. As we go into a Legislative Session, advocacy for higher education will be critically important. I believe that listening carefully to the views of all stakeholders is essential prior to proposing actions that impact the University as a local and global community. I would enjoy the interaction with other Executive Committee members and would consider it an honor to participate as a collaborative, consensus-building member of the Committee.
