Avinnash P. Tiwari Candidate Statement 2020

My work as a Career Instructor allows me to focus on serving students in the classroom and especially serving students facing barriers to their education. Currently, I teach Writing Composition courses, including a section for students receiving advising through the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence where I get to work with primarily first generation students, and serve as the Acting Director of the new Black Studies Program. My position as Politics Chair on our faculty union’s executive council also gives me an opportunity to push for our work as faculty serving students to be better understood and supported in our community and State. My work will always center on students and I believe this perspective can enhance this committee’s engagement in serving our students and honoring our role as a public institution of higher education.
