Michael Hames-Garcia Candidate Statement 2019

I have worked at the UO for nearly 15 years, having arrived as an associate professor in 2005. Shortly after arriving on campus, I did a good deal of service as a program and center director, a department head, and a member of the FPC, FAC, and Graduate Council. I have watched the university change significantly in recent years, both for the better and for the worse.

As an active member of our faculty union, as an advocate for faculty, students, and staff of color, and as someone who has been outspoken on issues ranging from campus sexual assault to financial and programmatic transparency at the UO, I hope to continue to do what I can to make this university more equitable, more accessible, more fair, and more just.
