transparency At a time when the university is threatened with a further decrease in resources and is poised to enter into a new relationship with the people of the state it is more important than ever

have given me a broad perspective on interdisciplinary research different teaching models and the promotion and tenure processes in both the social studies and physical sciences divisions My

In the recent past I have served as a member and chair of the tenure committee for the Biological Sciences Division and I am currently serving on the University Committee These experiences have underlined for me the importance of the faculty s role in shared governance To me the notion of faculty governance involves both process and responsibility The former includes the set of rules and procedures that facilitate the direct involvement of faculty in governance These are hollow however unless faculty likewise fulfill their responsibility to help create maintain and enact governance legislation I believe that the excellence of our institution and its diversity of endeavors accomplishments and people are best achieved through a governance structure in which faculty play an active and essential role Mark Cook 2011 2014 Professor Animal Sciences CALS biological sciences Member of the faculty since 1983 Former faculty senator Current member Molecular and Environmental Toxicology

Committee 2011 Election Statement Our university is facing increased responsibilities to provide financial security and an improved quality of life for Wisconsin s citizens UW Madison s value to our stakeholders is best realized when faculty are unencumbered in their creation of new ideas the discovery of new arts and inventions the transfer of knowledge to their students and the movement of their useful products beyond our campus Faculty actively involved in intellectual pursuit instruction research and outreach are best positioned to assess issues that could limit faculty freedoms As a faculty member who teaches every semester and has successful research and outreach activities I seek service on committees that can support faculty freedoms Serving on committees provided opportunities that have helped assure the continued ability of faculty to own and pursue their intellectual property have allowed faculty to study animals in their research have allowed meaningful teaching activities to flourish and have helped smooth paths for faculty to transfer their intellectual property to private enterprise As a member of the University Committee I will continue to hold dear faculty academic freedoms Steven Cramer 2004 2006 Professor Civil and Environmental Engineering College of Engineering Physical Sciences Division Member of the faculty since 1984 Director of the College of Engineering Structures and Materials Testing Laboratory Current and previous associate department chair Former member Physical Sciences Divisional Executive Committee chair Academic Program Review Committee chair Current member Teaching Academy 2004 Election Statement During nearly 20 years on this campus I have enjoyed working with faculty and staff at the departmental college and university level to make this university a better place to study and to work I have learned to respect the role we as faculty have on this campus in shaping our own environment This period of increasing financial stress will challenge the University of Wisconsin Madison to make difficult choices and find new ways to fulfill its multifaceted mission I feel proactive faculty participation in shared governance is now most critical to ensure we continue to possess a unique environment for scholarship and discovery The academic freedom we enjoy requires faculty diligence participation in governance decisions and better communication of what we do to our constituencies all at a time when faculty are asked to do more with less I will be particularly sensitive on the University Committee to the issues of enhancing the working environment for scholarship and discovery in the face of financial pressures that may work to the contrary Julie D Acci 2001 2004 Professor Communication Arts

studies has fueled a dedication to issues of diversity and equity as well as to inter departmental and inter school cooperation that I would bring to my duties The work of the University Committee is specifically devoted to building the university community and such work is vitally important to me Jim Escalante 2004 2006 Professor Art School of Education arts and humanities Member of the faculty

for the Humanities Advisory Board Global Health Institute Advisory Group Former member Graduate School Research Committee Kemper K Knapp Bequest Committee chair Committee on Undergraduate Recruitment Admissions and Financial Aid 2012 Election Statement It took me more than a decade as a member of our faculty to begin to understand that the UW Madison s commitment to faculty governance is not a rhetorical flourish left to us from bygone days deployed mechanically now for promotional purposes It is real It is deeply envied by attentive colleagues at peer institutions It is one of our greatest competitive advantages as smart academics around the country recoil from increasingly corporatized university governance structures and seek inspiration and positions in the few institutions such as ours that continue to work to the extent possible via the principle of leadership from the talented faculty to stay true to the idea of the university as a self organized community of scholars Vigilance about Wisconsin s faculty governance tradition is far more important now than ever As a faculty member in a professional school that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries as a scholar who earned tenure in the social studies division but moved mid career to the division of arts and humanities and as a university citizen who has maintained a good balance of scholarly production teaching and service I am well positioned and would be honored to represent my colleagues on the committee whose
