Currently I serve on a number of committees, including the Deans’ Faculty Diversity Advisory Group, the Special Talents Committee, the Royster Society of Fellows Board and Fellowship Committee, the Advisory Board for the Center for European Studies and the Advisory Committee for Undergraduate Admissions. In the past, I've served on the following committees: the Steering Committee for the Humanities for the Public Good and the Advisory Board for the Center for Faculty Excellence.
I’m invested in diversity, equity and inclusion work, in which I’ve been involved since I came to UNC 11 years ago. The next logical step is to make sure that our grievances are dealt with appropriately. I strive to make UNC a more equitable institution and part of that work also means hearing faculty members’ grievances and looking for fair solutions to those grievances. I have extensive experience in a leadership role, having served on the board of several national organizations. I am also serving as President of the American Association of Teachers of German.
