On behalf of the Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) we extend a warm welcome to the University of Utah. We are excited to have you on campus and look forward to meeting you and getting to know more about you. We also want you to get to know us, and what we have to offer.
BFSA was established to bring a positive presence of Black faculty, staff, post-docs and students to the University of Utah. We strive to create a welcoming environment especially to new members of our community as well as a supportive network to past, present, and future individuals of the African American community. The purpose of BFSA is to be an organization that enhances the educational, social, and professional opportunities and assist in acclimating to the U of U environment. To that end we organize, sponsor and support events that hold unique interests to the BFSA membership and local community. We extend this open invitation to you to join us, get involved, and be a part of this progressive association.
A few tips to get the most out of BFSA:
- Join the BFSA Listserv AND make the BFSA web site a favorite. They will keep you apprised of all BFSA news, and events. It is the primary way that we communicate with the general body.
- Attend monthly general body meetings. They occur from 11:30am-1pm Thursdays in the College of Education. This is your opportunity to network, receive guidance, and navigate the campus.
- Join a committee. You have choices. Scholarships, Lecture Series, Mentoring, Social Events, Membership, and Professional Development. Don’t see something you like, come talk to us.
We look forward to seeing you.
