2020 Faculty Election
Running for: Faculty Hearings Committee
- School of Social Work
- Appointed: 2003
- PhD, University of Tennessee, 2004
I am a Professor at the School of Social Work and a mental health services researcher focused on intervention research with individuals with severe mental illnesses, especially those who are involved in the criminal justice system. Over the past 18 years I have served on and chaired numerous committees at the School of Social Work and the University, including Faculty Council (2013-2019), the Faculty Research Committee (2011 – present, chair since 2013), the Graduate School’s Weiss Urban Livability Faculty Board (2014 – present), the Institutional Review Board (2018 – present), and the Undergraduate Hearings Board (2014 – present).
As a former member of the Faculty Hearings Committee, I would be honored to again serve the University in this capacity. During my time on the Faculty Hearings Committee, I participated in two hearings, one of which I chaired. I am experienced with the policies and procedures of the Committee and will work hard to ensure that the personnel issues that come before the Committee are resolved fairly. I have been a member of the Carolina community since 2003 and have served on several committees at the School of Social Work and the University. Of particular note, for the last six years I have represented faculty on the Undergraduate Hearings Board. I care deeply about the University and will work diligently to ensure the equitable administration of policies and regulations governing academic tenure and promotion.
