BFSA President's Message

I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude on being elected as the president for the Black Faculty and Staff Association.  I look forward to working with our organization, faculty, staff, students and University community as we continue to strive for excellence and fulfill our mission and goals at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

As we continue to make efforts in moving our organization forward, we will grow and recruit new members to our organization.  With an increased community and University presence, we will continue to strengthen and enhance our brand by providing opportunities for our members to be involved and make a difference.  We are also working closely with our students and ensuring they are connected and their voice is heard.  In the spring, we will honor our Black undergraduate students who excel academically. 

I look forward to leading our organization to new heights as we continue to impact our campus community.  Let us strive for growth and development as we move forward into the year.
