Candidate Statement: I believe that the true measure of success is reflected in the ability to forge the future on our own terms. In academia, every moment presents challenges requiring creative and unique solutions. Engagement of our community in finding these solutions is the crucial element of survival for academic institutions like OSU. While I have experience in the governance of European educational institutions, academic self-governance and affirmative academic freedoms practiced there can easily be conveyed at our university. The Senate and EC are the most important places where the OSU community can select the content of our education and research missions.
