November 2015 Newsletter


We will not agree on every issue. But let us respect those differences and respect one another. Let us recognize that we do not serve an ideology or a political party; we serve the people: John Lynch


We are making progress: This is the second Faculty Club Newsletter


We would like to emphasize that the University of Utah Faculty Club is a gathering place for those who enjoy meeting other members of the University of Utah faculty from both the main and health sciences campuses in casual comfortable surroundings to enjoy food, drink and camaraderie.

The Faculty Club is a group of individuals who meet on a monthly basis to mingle and share our experiences. Our group has over 250 members, and we have activities planned to allow us to get to know our University, and each other.
