Faculty Resource Guide is now online
The 2006 edition of the Faculty Resource Guide is now available online in PDF format through a link on the NewsPage.  The University Communications Office surveyed all full-time faculty last fall to gather and update entries for the latest edition.  Copies have been distributed to selected news media representatives in Jonesboro, Little Rock and Memphis, and also to the deans and chairs.  In addition to news media, the guide is often used by civic organizations and others seeking faculty expertise.  It's not too early to start submitting information for the next edition.  Send revisions and additions to Tom Moore, director of university communications, tmoore@astate.edu.
