2013 Candidate Statement Patty Gallagher

Since joining the UCSC Faculty in 2004,  I have served on the Committee on Academic Advising (2 years), Graduate Council (3 years) and the Committee on Planning and Budget (3 years). My other service work includes the Porter Executive Committee and the Porter Academic Standing Committee (of which I'm currently a member).  I continue to serve on multiple committees and work groups at the  divisional and departmental level.  My Academic Senate mentors have taught me that effective shared governance (particularly during budget crises) demands creative tactical thinking and dogged good will.  I aim to bring both to the COC.
