ACE Faculty Liaisons

The purpose of the ACE Faculty Liaisons group is to establish department level connections between ACE and the FSU campus community. These connections will serve to enhance two-way communication and sharing of information between FSU faculty and ACE. The faculty liaisons will provide feedback and ideas regarding the direction of ACE programs and services that best meet the needs of faculty and students. Furthermore, the liaisons will afford a means of communicating ACE's mission and available services to academic departments across campus.
