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, and I am the chair of our newly formed Mentoring Committee for our tenure track assistant professors. Outside of the department, I have been on the University Teaching Awards Committee and the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony Speaker Selection Panel.
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). 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.
