We, the Black Faculty Staff Association (BFSA), aspire to creating a campus climate that is inviting, nurturing, and hospitable. We are dedicated to establishing a proactive environment that is supportive of the recruitment, retention, and affirmative action of Black faculty, staff, and students. We promote programs that lead to the better understanding and teaching of Black students. We are a multicultural and diverse association. Decision-making and accountability are shared, creating an environment that is vital, challenging, rewarding, and enjoyable. Our Association makes a difference--it enriches the lives of our campus community.
