Annual Holiday Gathering
Each year we celebrate the festive holiday season with UT Staff, Faculty, Administrators, Community Leaders, Friends & Guests. We also honor the contributions of faculty and staff to BFSA and the university community.
We are happy to announce the Black Faculty and Staff Association's Annual Holiday Gathering, on Wednesday, December 5, 2012. The event will be held at the Connally Ballroom at the UT Alumni Center.
This is an opportunity for us to show our appreciation to our membership, award our Dr. James L. Hill Education Scholarship, and be thankful for another year of success as an organization.
IMPORTANT! There is limited space at this event which will provide a dinner, entertainment and evening beverages. Your spot at this event is NOT confirmed until you RSVP and receive an email confirmation from LT Robinson, President of BFSA.
Preference for a space will be given to members who have currently paid their dues to the organization (for the 2012-2013 academic year), invited guests, and dignitaries.
You will receive a confirmation email and we ask that you be patient as we manage the list of attendees.
Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Luncheon
Each year we host our campus-wide Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Luncheon. The goal of our luncheon is to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and acknowledge the impact of diversity on campus. We want to continue to encourage our students that diversity is necessary and it strengthens our community. Your involvement with this program is an excellent opportunity to expose your commitment to diverse culture as well as our Austin community.
This event marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream Speech."

Each year we host our Annual Black History Month Program to celebrate the achievement and leagacy of all African People. Originally founded in 1926 by historian Carter G.
