My service to UNC includes presenting a “Professor’s Perspective” lecture during new student orientation, serving on the Provost’s Working Group on high-risk alcohol and substance use, and reviewing internal applications for limited submission awards. I have served as a member of Faculty Council, and the Faculty Assembly Delegation, chairing the latter from 2016-2018. I have served on the Nominating, Agenda, and General Education Oversight Committees. I currently serve on the Financial Exigency and Program Change committee, and serve as Chair of the Faculty Hearings Committee.
My primary appointment is in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, where I teach undergraduate and graduate students. I am also a member of two centers based in the medical school: the Biomedical Research Imaging Center, and the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies, and train graduate students through the campus-wide Neuroscience Curriculum. As a result, I have gained an appreciation for the broad array of challenges facing faculty across campus, and for the complexity of solving problems in an elite, state-supported, research-intensive university environment. I welcome the opportunity to continue serving on the Faculty Hearings Committee and aim to ensure that tenured faculty have access to an unbiased forum in which to contest notices of discharge.
