UCEA Headquarters doctoral student Erin Anderson interviews Executive Committee candidate Hanne B. Mawhinney
I am honored to be nominated to serve on the Executive Committee of UCEA. I have represented the University of Maryland on the UCEA Plenum since 1999 when I joined the Department of Policy and Leadership. UCEA has had a profound influence on my personal and professional development since 1990 when I was invited to attend the 11th Annual Graduate Seminar prior to receiving my Ph.D. from the University of Ottawa. Since then UCEA has provided multiple opportunities for me to further my efforts to advance through my research, scholarship, and teaching a critical and an interpretive approach to the institutional analysis of the organizational leadership, administration, governance, and policy change. I have organized symposia, participated in panel discussions, reviewed proposals and presented over 30 papers at UCEA conferences. I have published in, been a reviewer for, and on the editorial board of EAQ and a member of the UCEA publications committee. I have had the great pleasure of participating in the Clark Seminar faculty mentorship, and working with Jackson Scholars. For the past four years I have represented UCEA on the audit and steering committee of the Education Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC). In 2011, I received a service award from UCEA for work with that committee in developing 2011 ELCC Standards for School and District Leadership. I deeply appreciate the opportunities I have had through UCEA to participate in vibrant debates that have created new spaces for discourses and actions that open possibilities for everyone. As a member of the Executive Committee I would continue this tradition.
It's good to talk.
