Duties included reviewing job applications, organizing meetings, recommending applicants, participate in group discussions about the strengths and weaknesses of candidates. Participated in discussions, interviews, meetings, etc. in regards to hiring a full time faculty member of the mathematics faculty.
- October 2019-March 2020. Program Review Committee chair for the Mathematics program. The main duty was to write the self-study report on the department. This took many hours of work. It culminated with the visit of an off-site team to BYUH on March 10-12, 2020. We were asked to evaluate the department within its national/international institutional contexts, provide recommendations for improvement, and to offer insight on trends and issue of particular relevance to the department. A curious note is that the final day of the visit was the last day before the pandemic hit. As a result of that, tied with the inauguration of a new President of the University, this program review has largely been ignored by the administration. We worked hard to streamline our classes under the last administration, enabling our students to graduate with a math degree in 3 years if they went every semester. Now those improvements have been dismantled because class sizes were small for upper division classes.
- January-February 2016. Chair for search for new Math Lab Coordinator. Search was similar to a faculty search, but the person will be a volunteer that will come here on a church service mission. Period of service for the position is two years.

- 2013. Led the Program Review of the Mathematics Department. As a result, we have had several improvements that have been implemented here. One is the introduction of tracks in our major. We now have a pure math track, aimed at getting a student into graduate school in mathematics, and an applied track, which allows a student to pursue a particular area of employment, or to pursue a graduate degree in an applied math field, such as engineering, statistics, physics, or computers.
- November 2012. Chair of search committee for Department Secretary. Duties include recruitment of committee members, dissemination of materials, developing rubric to judge candidates, interviewing, followup with HR/other candidates. Participated in discussions, interviews, meetings, etc.

Class is currently taught using the MyStatLab system of Pearson publishing. We now do common exams and homework for all our classes. Teachers are free to implement quizzes or alternative homework as well.
- 2006-2015. Math Faculty Lead in automating the functioning of the Polyvision CopyCam webcams located in GCB 178, which takes images of class / lecture notes. Automated the downloading, sorting, and placing of the notes on the web for the students to download and view. The system requires monitoring to make sure it is functioning properly. The system broke down and was removed from the classroom in Summer 2015.

University service include dissemination of information to the department, training, working with new faculty on their development plan, mentor them, and guide them. The duties of the program lead remain the same, at least in how responsible I feel for them. While I don't have as many duties, it still feels the same. If I don't work on things in our department, they may be mislaid or forgotten. In 2020, I was the chair of the program review of our department, which was also done back in 2013 when I was chair of the department.
- May 2012-July 2018. Chair of the Mathematics department. Many of the duties relate to Departmental service and those are listed above. University service include dissemination of information to the department, training, working with new faculty on their development plan, mentor them, and guide them. A big part of my job is planning and working on assessment. In 2013, I led the program review of our department, which has led to some improvements in our department, including the creation of a new Applied track within our Math BS degree.
