Candidate Statement

I am running for the promotion and tenure committee because of my commitment to processes that are fair, transparent, and consistent. One of my areas of research has been related to effective processes, and what it takes for them to be perceived as legitimate and procedurally fair. I also write about six evaluation letters a year for promotion and tenure cases in my field, giving me a good sense of the range of productivity and talent that P&T evaluators face. I hope to bring this expertise and experience to the promotion and tenure committee.
