ONE VOICE, ONE FACE, ONE MISSION
The mission of the Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) is to support the academic and professional development of African American faculty, staff, students and other individuals of color. We traditionally use cultural awareness and programs to achieve our mission and to make the larger campus community more aware of African American contributions to the University of Tennessee and society at large. Membership is open to all UT employees and retirees.
We envision a campus climate and community in which diligent efforts are made to recruit, promote and retain Black faculty, staff and senior leadership in key administrative positions. The BFSA wants all Black faculty and staff to have opportunities to achieve their full potential and to have a respected voice within the University-system community.
