Candidate Statement: My desire for increased faculty governance at OSU and my feeling that faculty have a responsibility to serve the larger community of the institution are the reasons I agreed to be a candidate for the Faculty Senate Executive Committee. Faculty voice is critical and that voice must represent all members of the university community, not just the majority voice. Morale is better if faculty feel that they have influenced decisions about the direction and future of the institution. The Executive Committee provides me with an opportunity to represent faculty opinion and hopefully impact our future.
