2013 Candidate Statement Rodney Ogawa

Since joining UCSC's faculty in 2002, I served as Chair of the Education Department for 6 years.  I also served on numerous committees in the Division of Social Sciences.  In 2010-11 and 2011-12, I served on the Committee on Academic Personnel.  I am pleased to be nominated for service on the Committee on Committees.  I have observed the critical contributions made by CoC to faculty governance through its judicious appointment of colleagues to Senate service.  Moreover, I believe that I can contribute to enacting UCSC's commitment to equity and diversity by working to appoint diverse colleagues to positions of faculty leadership.
