I have confidence in the power of positive change and continuous improvement. We can always, always improve. This is one of the reasons why I was so honored to Co-Chair the SUNY Council on Assessment. When we assess, we document and capture important reflections, make deeper connections and learn ways to really advance. In this way, we can all work smarter and not harder. We can also decide upon and reach shared goals. Leading up to this role, I have had the pleasure of serving as past Faculty Council chairperson. This was a position that I was especially honored to serve having been elected to serve by my colleagues. I also Chair Non-Academic Assessment at C-GCC, where I have had the opportunity lead the most committed and hardworking people ever.  I have also served as a board member on the Assessment Network of New York, and currently organize many of the SCoA Drive-In events. I am honored to have participated in the SUNY Remote Teaching Institute during the COVID-19 pivot to help colleagues better understand and plan for student succcess in their areas.
