LatinX Staff & Faculty Association

Building Community & Belonging Among LatinX Faculty & Staff

Join our Association


Our strength is fueled by the rich cultural tapestry made up of every member of our campus.

The mission of the Latinx Faculty & Staff Association at the University of Arizona is to build community among the Latinx faculty, staff and other interested professionals, by empowering employees regardless of discipline or rank. Through voice, support, and service – we will foster an inclusive workplace in the spirit of culture and the advancement of personal and professional growth.

We are a community comprised of and for all Latinx faculty and staff. We welcome guests and families to our open functions and programs.

Our Association was established in 2021 and charged with building a sense of community and belonging through the empowerment of the Latinx identity, values and goals.

Through servingness, strategically leveraging campus resources, and finding joy – we can expand the potential of our faculty and staff.

Connection: Fostering relationships, support, network and servingness

Community: Sense of belonging and empowerment
