The Black Staff and Faculty Affinity Group seeks to develop a sense of community and to provide a forum for discussion and subsequent actions related to concerns of black faculty, staff, and students. Although we focus on issues germane to Black staff and faculty, we welcome all staff and faculty from UC Denver who share our concerns to join us for our meetings, and to provide support.
Co-chaired by: Brenda J. Allen and Leslie Taylor
