Inside Linfield - Staff Resources

Staff Assembly

Comprised of Linfield staff members from each school and department across the University, the Staff Assembly also promotes communication, community, and builds unity among staff, administration, and faculty. The Staff Assembly was established:

to create a sense of community across departments and schools;
to give input regarding institutional matters; and
to provide employee recognition and to promote professional growth.
