Candidate Statement

I am a Tar Heel triple threat; alumna, faculty member, and parent. I have deep, chosen ties to this University. I am honored to be a candidate for Chair of the Faculty, and believe that my academic training in public health, leadership roles at multiple levels of the university, experience developing and directing academic programs, and bridge-building temperament uniquely equip me to serve as Chair as we navigate the disruptions, challenges, and opportunities that we will undoubtedly encounter over the next few years. As Chair, my priorities will be to protect and enhance our efforts toward building an inclusive, equitable environment for Carolina’s faculty, staff, and students; safeguard the integrity of the role of faculty in decision-making; and advocate for full and timely information-sharing in matters that concern faculty.
