NIU Black Faculty and Staff Association


President’s Welcome

Dr. William McCoyThank you for visiting our website! My name is Dr. William McCoy, and I serve as the President of the Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA). BFSA is a university-recognized organization of Black faculty and professionals on the NIU Campus who are dedicated to the advancement of Black issues on our campus. Our organization stands firmly on the shoulders of Black academicians and staff members who blazed a trail for future generations to travel on towards success.

As a proud NIU alum (BA, 1992), I envision BFSA continuing to make a positive and lasting impact on our Black student population through intergenerational transfer and academic modeling. Likewise, I envision our faculty and staff advantageously engaged in BFSA-sponsored events designed for self-improvement, whether academic, professional, or personal in nature. The dedicated Black professionals on our campus are strong, proud, and visionary. These are the inherent traits of great leadership, and NIU is not lacking in this area.

I invite the curious to inquire and learn further about the organization. We are “committed to working with all people to achieve our goals and objectives.” Join us as we progress forward, together forward!
