Past Events

Asian/Asian American Faculty Staff Association

A networking event was held on April 1, 2021. Although this event has passed, you can still join us. 

Established in 2007, the Asian/Asian American Faculty Staff Association (AAA-FSA) consists of employees of Miami University at the Hamilton, Middletown, and Oxford campuses. Its mission includes the following actions:

  • Advocate for Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander faculty and staff at Miami. We will support and defend the rights and privileges accorded to faculty and staff. We will make efforts to increase opportunities for current faculty and staff in order to raise our profile on campus. We will function as a liaison to the university regarding matters of concern to our community.
  • Promote the intellectual and personal development of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander students at Miami. We will work with students for the purpose of guiding their academic and cultural interests.
  • Collaborate with other Miami organizations and the community at large to foster a greater understanding of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander issues and concerns. We will build networks and foster partnerships among academic affairs, student affairs, and community organizations to advance diversity, equity, and social justice.
  • Celebrate the cultures and contributions of Asian, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders in the United States and in the Diaspora. We will support university and community activities that fall within the scope of our organization's mission.
