Candidate Statement

Serving on the Honorary Degrees and Special Awards Committee would give me the opportunity to exercise the skills I’ve gained in administrative appointments over the last nineteen years. When I served on Faculty Council, I was especially active on questions of academic freedom and adequate representation in faculty governance. My commitment to UNC stretches across several disciplines: besides my appointment in Romance Studies, I have an adjunct appointment in English and Comparative Literature and as Affiliate Faculty in American Studies; I’ve served on the Academic Advisory Boards of the Ackland Museum and the Minor in Global Cinema. If elected to this committee, I would bring my long experience at UNC to bear selecting recipients of our honors and awards who best reflect our values and accomplishments.
