Fall 2018- LIUFF President Welcome...

Sep 1, 2018 by

Dear Colleagues, Welcome back to campus after what I hope was a productive and restful summer, and a well-earned Labor Day holiday. The academic year ahead promises possibility and challenge, and I look forward to working with all of you to make meaningful progress toward the university we have committed ourselves to: one that puts students and faculty at the center of everything we do.

We grieve the murder of Heather Heyer, who stood firm against white supremacists...
