Candidate Statement

At a financially robust such as UNC, it would be unfortunate and unexpected that this committee would meet. I am committed to representing the best interest of all faculty, furthering goals of diversity, equity and inclusion, and financial responsibility to all stakeholders. I will approach my duties with transparency, persistence, honesty, curiosity, and kindness.
