Filipinx Faculty & Staff Association

Mission and Purpose

The purpose of the Filipinx Faculty & Staff Association (FFSA) is to build community among and beyond Filipinx and other marginalized groups on campus and advocate for social justice issues through a decolonized framework. We do this through:

  • Fostering relationships between students, staff, faculty, and other organizations

  • Promoting educational opportunities and creating space for Filipinx culture and history

  • Providing professional development opportunities

  • Establishing allyship with other marginalized groups on campus
