My role as an academic leader is to create a strong vision of the education we want to provide for our students by distilling existing institutional culture and mixing it with innovative ideas and best practices from other institutions; to forge consensus and create a sense of joint purpose for the faculty, staff and students and to apply innovative approaches and problem solving skills to achieve our mutual goals.

My management approach is open on a number of levels. I have an open door access policy. My budgeting process is open and available to all faculty and staff. I encourage open and honest discussion and questioning in all meetings and will either respond honestly or if unable to divulge information will explain why.
