LaFaSA: Purdue University-Latino Faculty/Staff Association

The Latino Faculty and Staff Association (LaFaSA) is an educational organization whose purpose is to promote the Latino community and advocate for the inclusion of the Latino voice in higher education. LaFaSA strives to highlight the social and cultural dimensions of Latino history, heritage, and culture as it relates to education.

In partnership with the Latino Cultural Center and other Latino-based organizations, LaFaSA works to organize Latino faculty and staff to create a stronger, vibrant “comunidad” at Purdue University. LaFaSA strives to create community and a support network in order to thrive as viable and visible assets to Purdue.

The goals of LaFaSA are to communicate interests, concerns, and awareness of Latinos; assist in recruitment and retention of Latino faculty, staff, and students; foster the academic mission of Purdue; enhance progress of our faculty and staff through the ranks; and to provide valuable cultural programming to educate the broader population.
