Black Faculty and Staff Association

Welcome to the Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) website! Our goal is to build community and highlight resources that enhance the personal and professional development of Black faculty and staff. We encourage your participation and support throughout the year.

BFSA membership is open to all faculty and staff at Iowa State University, regardless of age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and protected U.S. veteran status.

Upcoming BFSA activities

BFSA hosts a variety of events throughout the year. Such events include a Welcome Back social, Juneteenth gathering, professional development and connection events, and community outreach events.

We would love to have you join the conversation. Details about the events and locations are announced in the BFSA newsletter via email and on social media.
