Service

I serve my students, peers, department, university, and community, allowing me to contribute to a wide variety of service-related activities. Some are listed below, but more are available on my vita. Categorization of service work is doubly contingent. That is, one form of service often blends into another, which defies simple classification. I’m fortunate because I like my job, colleagues, and students. Service is a way to pay respect to those who have helped us along the way.
