She also led a rebranding process for NIFL that resulted in clearer messages about the agency’s role, a new logo, and other changes that improved visual consistency among the organization’s publications and website. Lynn often met with senior staff on Capitol Hill, in Federal agencies and national organizations as well as members of NIFL’s Presidentially-appointed Advisory Board, including presidents of community colleges and foundations, tenured faculty, and nationally recognized education researchers.
