Preamble

Two grads

In an effort to provide for solidarity and fellowship in the community of academics, administrators and supportive staff of African descent at California State University, Fresno, and recognizing the historical significance of the term “Black” in  reference to the self-concept and social justice efforts of Americans of African descent, it has been deemed appropriate to secure for ourselves an organization, whose goals are to promote the awareness of the needs of its members, and to advance the interests of Black faculty and Staff. To that end, the “intentionality” of our purpose has been focused in the decision to utilize the name, “Black Faculty and Staff Association” at California State University Fresno for the organization created for the purposes outlined in the Constitution and By-laws which are linked in the left column.
