Communications

The USF System Chapter of the UFF publishes the Biweekly; here is the most recent issue.

We also occasionally issue press releases.

For information, contact the Communications Committee.

Visit us on Facebook!

We have a Facebook page!  Check out United Faculty of Florida at USF.  It is public (so anyone - students, colleagues, the provost - and read it) and all UFF members are eligible to join the group that posts items on it.  The page serves as a forum for UFF members to share issues and interests.  Check it out!
