The NIU Black Faculty and Staff Association is a university-recognized organization dedicated to raising awareness of black issues on campus. We support black faculty, staff and students and act as a voice for their concerns. We also provide opportunities for mentoring, networking and collaboration.
The events and activities we sponsor give faculty and staff opportunities for academic, professional and personal growth. Our awards and scholarships recognize the excellence of black faculty, staff and students and reward them for their efforts. We also aim to guide black students by acting as role models and providing historical context to their studies.
We invite new members to join us. Contact us to see how you can get involved.
