Professional Associates

Professional Associates Liaison Assignments

The Professional Associates Liaison Program has been developed to facilitate PA assistance to FLC faculty and staff, and to FLC programs.

We expect that Professional Associates members will develop a working relationship with the office or academic department to which they have been assigned.  The objective is to bring an awareness of Professional Associates activities and capabilities to the office or department, while facilitating the assistance of Professional Associates to the office or department in ways that will increase the effectiveness of its programs.

Liaison relationships that have been established are listed below.  Departments and offices with no liaison person listed may request a Professional Associates liaison person by contacting Dr. eeorge Widmeyer.
