The Latino Faculty and Staff Association (LaFaSA) at the University of Central Florida (UCF), was founded in acknowledgement of UCF’s emerging Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) designation. The three founding officers believed the Latino/a/x community needed to have an organized, informed and active presence at UCF that could advise senior leadership on the needs of the Latino/a/x community at the university. Present day, the Association continues to work to ensure equitable representation in university initiatives and equitable access to resources that promote the success of the Latino/a/x community.
LaFaSA represents the collective interests of Latino/a/x faculty and staff at UCF.
LaFaSA is dedicated to creating community and advocating for Latino/a/x faculty and staff at UCF.
To become a national model for how higher education institutions, specifically Hispanic Serving Institutions, intentionally serve and empower their Latino/a/x faculty and staff.
