Members of a college faculty accept, as part of their job descriptions, both the authority and the primary responsibility to reach decisions that depend upon their areas of expertise, including the shape of the curriculum, subject matter and our methods of instruction, the nature of research in a field of study, and the dimensions of student life that intersect with the educational process. Instead of functioning as merely employees of the institution, then, the faculty is recognized as a body of professionals with specialized training and knowledge who are in turn uniquely qualified to exercise decision-making authority.

My work as a faculty member at Keene State College has been primarily focused in the field of English Studies. Since 1998 I have also been a member of the Core Faculty in American Studies and have served since 2005 as an Affiliate Faculty in Environmental Studies.
