Why are you serving on the Faculty Advisory Committee?
“I intend to use my expertise to advocate for social justice in education and society through the advancement of equity and inclusion work done at colleges and universities, governmental agencies, and public service organizations. The opportunity to lead and facilitate conference conversations similar to the classroom discussions I am currently participating in is an experience I desire. I also see the faculty experience as an opportunity to continue building on research questions I am developing for exploration.”
