AFRICAN AMERICAN FACULTY & STAFF COUNCIL

The African American Faculty & Staff Council (AAFSC) serves the African and African American classified, academic staff, and faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) by providing resources, mentoring, a sense of community and equity, and a network of support for both new and seasoned employees.  We provide a forum to discuss and address issues as they pertain to African/African American faculty and staff on campus as well as in the extended community.    Our goals for this year are to raise the visibility of the AAFSC, revisit and amend AAFSC bylaws, and identify scholarships readily available to African American students.  Your knowledge, perspectives and insight are essential to the success of every African American at UWM.  You are welcome and encouraged to attend the monthly meetings.
