Pan African Faculty and Staff Association | PAFSA

RECOGNIZING OUR PEOPLE, RESTORING OUR HISTORY, RECLAIMING OUR FUTURE

The Pan-African Faculty & Staff Association was founded in 1972 by the Institute for African American Affairs, (now the Department of Pan-African Studies) is celebrating 45 years of advocacy and service. PAFSA was formed to promote employment, participation in university affairs, and the intellectual contributions of the Pan-African community toward the growth and success of Kent State University. The association is open to all faculty and staff. Our main goal is to build communication bridges as we continue to promote diversity, equality and inclusion in education and employment throughout our eight campus system.
