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 and Agenda Committees, and currently serve on the Faculty Hearings, General Education Oversight, and Financial Exigency and Program Change Committees. If selected to serve another term on the Financial Exigency Committee I will be happy to do so.
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 Financial Exigency and Program Change Committee and aim to balance the differing concerns, goals, and strengths of of our diverse diverse faculty in any any decision making by the committee.
