Welcome back to Roosevelt! We hope your first couple of days have been a smooth beginning to a successful semester. We have some news and opportunities that you may be interested in!

Opportunities for professional development:

  • Writing on the Edge is coming up, and RAFO will reimburse registration costs for up to 10 full-dues-paying members who wish to attend. This conference is specifically for adjunct faculty and will take place Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 8 am – 4 pm at College of DuPage. The conference focuses on writing across the curriculum and invites other disciplines to join the conversation of how to increase learning for students no matter the subject matter. Email us at rafo @ rafo.org if you're interested.
  • The Illinois Education Association's ONE Conference is coming up on October 4-5. 

Opportunities to support RAFO

RAFO has some spaces for full-dues-paying members to get involved and support the union as we advocate for you. We need members to serve on our professional development, membership, or grievance committees. Please let us know if you're interested in becoming involved with the union. 

Finally, RAFO is looking to profile some of our members in the upcoming academic year. Please email us (rafo @ rafo.org) and let us know about your professional accomplishments or nominate yourself or a fellow adjunct to be one of our adjunct feature blogs.

Have a great beginning of the semester, and please be sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter to stay up-to-date on current events.
