I thoroughly appreciate the opportunity to be part of an institution that strives to apply scholarly discovery to positively impact people’s lives and embraces an effective faculty governance. The University Committee helps promote these distinguishing traditions, in part, by maintaining sound connections between campus administration & faculty and by ensuring fair application of policies that are foundational to the mission of UW-Madison. Throughout my career here, I have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to supporting student life and faculty development. I would be honored and motivated to apply my relevant service and leadership experiences as a member of the University Committee.
