Personal Statement

I don’t believe that administrative ability is the sole requirement to be the Associate Dean (for Academic Operations and General Education). A clear appreciation of the role of liberal education and its importance for the institution as a whole is necessary for an Associate Dean of Arts and Science. One of my favorite quotes that best describes the role of liberal art education comes from T.S. Eliot: “No one can become really educated without having pursued some study in which he took no interest. For it is part of education to interest ourselves in subjects for which we have no aptitude.” As associate dean I am a champion of the ideals of liberal education and the benefits that they provide the students and the University. I also believe that an associate dean needs a clear appreciation for effective teaching and research. Over the past several years, I have kept an active research agenda and taught a wide variety of courses.

Research Interests

Coverings of groups and loops and the subloop lattice of finite loops.
