|The Asian Faculty and Staff Association (AFSA) at UWM was initiated in fall 2003 by a small group of Asian faculty/staff who realized the need for an affinity group to advocate and network for its members, and function as a resource for the university community. A Steering Committee and a Mission Statement were created to guide the work of AFSA. In spring 2004, an Award Program was established to recognize outstanding Asian students.|
AFSA MISSION STATEMENT
AFSA seeks to advance the scholastic and civic interests of its members by providing opportunities to:
- work collaboratively across disciplines to plan and conduct research;
- promote partnerships with community-based organizations for research and evaluation activities;
- serve as a consultant to the UWM community on academic, sociocultural, climate, and faculty/staff/student issues;
- encourage and reward the scholastic achievement and community participation of UWM Asian and Asian American students; and
- network and socialize.
