Vera Sebulsky Candidate Statement 2019

As an OA and at my third Tier-1 research institution, I want to support UO’s elevation in academic prestige and student services success. My bicultural background and broad experience in student services and recruitment, interaction with faculty (engineering, business, and arts and sciences), and industry outreach have equipped me to give back to UO by suggesting practical ways we can improve the student and faculty experience.

I have worked collaboratively with research and teaching faculty, cultivated a positive student experience and increased programming, and surpassed student recruitment goals in the midst of limited resources and funding. I would advance a broader vision that drives recruitment and retention success by viewing each faculty member and prospective and current student as a valuable member of our community.

Higher education is changing quickly. I aim to be useful in supporting the University to stay relevant and sustainable in a rapidly changing technological landscape with evolving student needs. I will also advocate for UO’s capacity to lead in research excellence in a way it hasn’t yet realized.
