COVID-19 and CFA

COVID-19, or the coronavirus, is challenging our university communities.  At CFA, our tenure-line faculty, lecturer faculty, librarians, counselors and coaches are not alone.  We are stronger together.

Check this page regularly for updates on CFA’s advocacy for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff.  We’re also providing resources for faculty to navigate the many issues the coronavirus pandemic presents.
