Service

No one starts a website to crow about their service, and I am keeping this category mainly as a nod to tradition and to maintain the symmetry of the academic triumvirate: teaching, research, and service.

But since you’re here, my primary service roles to my campus and to Indiana University (as of April 2022) include Faculty Senate President, an elected position I’ve held since 2019, Chair of the Budgetary Affairs Committee, Campus Coordinator for the American Democracy Project, Grounding Gardener in the Indiana University Digital Gardeners program, Faculty Fellow in the Adobe Creative Campus program, and the KEY Coordinator for English and Language Studies. I am also the founder of PodFest, IU Kokomo’s annual podcasting festival since 2021. I am also a proud participant and volunteer at the yearly Student Research Symposium on the IU Kokomo campus.

I serve the discipline of rhetoric and composition studies as reviews editor (since 2018) of the online journal Across the Disciplines,
