Feb 17, 2020 by

Dear LIUFF Member, Welcome to the faculty and to the LIUFF Adjunct Guide! We are thrilled to announce the web production of these materials and thank both Electa Brown and Linda Lopez for spearheading this effort.  What was first imagined as a physical binder that could be produced for every faculty member has now become an online resource that we can add to and update dynamically as needed.  We further envision moving towards an App that can be downloaded.  Stay tuned to check back on these efforts.
