I have served as my department’s Associate Chair and have twice been elected to the Chair’s Advisory Committee. I have been a member of the graduate and undergraduate committees, reappointment and promotion committees, and numerous hiring committees within my department. Outside of the department, my service includes membership on the University Teaching Awards Committee and the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony Speaker Selection Panel. And I am a current member of the Faculty Council.
I have a passion for working with Carolina’s students. This is evidenced by trainings that I have attended (Equity in Teaching Institute, Safe Zone Ally, Carolina F1rsts Advocate) and past recognitions (2019 Faculty Award for Excellence in Doctoral Mentoring, 2018 UNC-CH Board of Governors’ Award for Excellence in Teaching, 2017 Sue Goodman Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Education, Bowman and Gordon Gray Distinguished Term Professorship commencing July 2021). Our universities have the difficult task of excelling on multiple fronts: conducting pioneering research, representing educational excellence, and exemplifying cultural awareness and social leadership. I believe that each of the three missions warrant deep consideration within faculty governance.
