Platform Statement

I am submitting my name for consideration as the Assistant Administrator for the APS out of a desire to serve ASSE and fellow colleagues. This is an opportunity I have been looking forward to, and so hope I get the opportunity to serve.

I plan on working with the APS administrator and other committee members to explore ways of getting more faculty members involved, develop mentorship program between “seasoned” faculty and “new” faculty within the group. I also hope to see more research partnerships between schools and/or members within the group.

I also hope to continue working with both the administrator and committee members to develop and nurture partnerships between APS and other interest groups with almost similar purposes.

Thanks for considering me for this position; I look forward to serving you if elected.
