I'm a Professor in and Chair of the Philosophy Department. I've been Chair since August of 2011, serving during different administrations and under different College and University leadership. I'm on the ballot to serve on the Advisory Search Committee for a new President of CSUN. I'd like to serve in this capacity to do all I can to make sure that our next President shares CSUN's values, understands the needs of its students, staff, faculty, and administrative staff, will work diligently to make sure that those needs are met, will work to center diversity and inclusion on CSUN's campus, in its governance and administrative practices, and in its curriculum. CSUN is a special place and a unique institution, and I want to do all I can to make sure that our next President will promote and protect CSUN's individuality and its distinct place in the CSU system.
