Susan E. Mulroney, Ph.D.
“While I never set a goal to be President of the Faculty Senate, serving has been one of the most fulfilling roles I have undertaken at Georgetown. The opportunity to work with Officers, faculty and leadership from all campuses on wide ranging issues, while continually working for transparency of information and equity is immensely gratifying– if I had known what an illuminating and educational experience it would be, I would have made it a goal long ago. The work of the Senate President is challenging, but the good news is, the current Officers have created an administrative structure that facilitates the orientation of newly elected Officers to their positions, allowing them all (including the President) to hit the ground running. I give it 5 stars.”
Erin Carroll, J.D.
Vice President, Law Center Caucus
“As a teacher and a scholar, I am a firm believer in the power of building community. I am honored to be in a role where I can collaborate with faculty across the University to continue to build a community in which all members can learn and thrive. As the Law Center’s Vice President to the Senate, I hope to be a listener, idea-generator, advocate, and partner. I am especially excited to be working with this committed and talented leadership team and the excellent administrators that support the Senate and its work.”
Kathryn de Luna, Ph.D.
Vice President, Main Campus Caucus
“Although the most obvious Senate work relates to faculty policies and shared governance, I have found rewarding the more informal collaboration with faculty from other units and campuses and with administration and staff. Not only does serving as a Senate officer offer a way to learn how the university is organized and operates, it allows faculty to participate in the brainstorming and advising that shapes administrative decisions that affect the lives of faculty, staff, and students.”
Jessica Jones, Ph.D.
Vice President, GUMC Caucus
“For the past three years as a member of the Faculty Senate, I have represented the interests of GUMC faculty as we adjusted to the unprecedented challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the return to campus, I have worked to make sure we have the facilities necessary to carry out our research, education, and clinical missions. I welcome the opportunity to represent my colleagues in the GUMC Senate Caucus and ensure that our voices are heard by leadership.”
Jennifer C. Boettcher, MLS, MBA
“I have been in service to the Georgetown University Faculty Senate since 2005 in many capacities. Being the Faculty Senate Secretary fits naturally with my identity. I am an information professional. My profession collects, organizes, and provides access to information so people can make informed decisions and generate wisdom. I would be happy to hear your ideas or suggestions on how to make accessing Faculty Senate information better and more meaningful.”
The Senate has five Officers: a President, a Vice-President for each campus, and a Secretary-Treasurer. Officers must be members of the Senate. Detailed information about the Officer roles is available below to encourage faculty to learn more about the positions and potentially get involved in Senate leadership. Per Section 6 of the Faculty Senate Constitution, every two years the Senate elects leadership from its membership. In the event that a vacancy occurs, there shall be a special election. The next Faculty Senate Officer election will occur at the May 31, 2023 Senate meeting. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
