Like most OSU faculty and administrators, I am committed to shared governance. Principally, I would like to serve on the EC to advocate for the recommendations of the Joint Task Force on Shared Governance (e.g. the EC appointing 20% of the members of many committees set up by the president or provost) that the faculty senate endorsed a year ago, but did not implement. I want to ensure that when the FS evaluates the changes resulting from the task force recommendations a year or two from now, as recommended by the report, there are actual changes to evaluate.
