Candidate Statement

I have a wealth of experience at UNC. I've been on this campus for thirty years, as a graduate student, a full-time academic adviser and, for nearly twenty years now, as full-time faculty. As a result of my many years as DUS for Global Studies, I have a very good understanding of the work of academic units across the social sciences and global programs. My experience has afforded me an integrated understanding of the cross-pressures that teaching faculty face in educating students, accommodating their needs and navigating university dictates that ask more and more of teaching faculty. On FC, I would be a voice for insisting that the university commit itself in deed, not just in word, to the needs and well-being of teaching faculty as we've become ever more central to the university's own stated commitment to its students.
