I see service on the Executive Committee as a responsibility of senior faculty. I have served as a faculty member for 17 years, 4 of which were spent in upper administration as the Director of the office for Women’s Advancement and Gender Equity. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience with the workings of the University and I am well aware of the issues that can challenge shared governance. Everyone has a role to play at OSU and we are all needed to meet the demands that we will see in the coming years.
