Black Faculty and Staff Association

Our mission

The Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) is dedicated to supporting the academic and professional development of faculty, staff and students through cultural awareness, campus governance, programs, services and mentoring while enriching the campus and surrounding communities.

Our vision

The Black Faculty and Staff Association aspires to create a campus climate that is inviting, nurturing, and hospitable.

What we do 

The organization was established circa 1988 by seven African American employees as a desired outcome to network and discuss issues. 25 years later, the BFSA continues to serve as a trusted resource for Murray State faculty and staff members by providing a forum for meaningful exchanges. We also historically partner with the Office of Multicultural Initiatives, Student Leadership & Inclusive Excellence (OMI) community to assist with outreach to our communities on and off campus. We hope that you will join us for many exciting events this academic year. You do not need to be a member of the BFSA to participate in BFSA or OMA activities/events.

Newsletters and Events


We hope that you will consider becoming a member of the BFSA.  Annual membership is only $25.00. Benefit from networking, recognition for your achievements, professional development, etc. Get early notifications about programs and events. With us, you are seen, heard and supported. We hope that you will participate and help us to enhance a culture of "oneness for all."
