The formation of the Black Faculty and Staff Association is the result of the collective efforts of concerned Black faculty and staff of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville to:
1. Provide a forum for association among Black faculty, staff, and students.
2. Function as an advisory board on behalf of the entire Black UT campus community.
3. Support and maintain the cultural traditions of persons of African descent within the context of the University of Tennessee.
