Joining the LGBTQ Faculty and Staff Association is an easy, two-step process: complete a membership application and pay annual dues.
Membership is open to all full-time, part-time, or retired faculty and professional staff of the University at Buffalo who agree to the purposes stated in the Constitution and contribute $30 dues on an annual basis. Funds raised by dues are used to support and sustain current Association programs and student scholarship and award initiatives.
Membership dues open at the beginning of every academic year in September. Dues paying members maintain active member status until August 31. Active member status includes eligibility to vote on Association business and in executive board elections.
Membership for the 2023-2024 academic year is now available.
To become a member, follow two easy steps:
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Faculty and Staff Association (“LGBTQ FSA” or “Association”), uses the LGBTQ acronym to refer to any person who identifies with an underrepresented sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. The Association recognizes, welcomes and is inclusive of all identities. The Association does not restrict membership or discriminate on the basis of any social identity, including sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
As outlined in the Association bylaws, eligibility for general membership shall be available to all full-time, part-time, or retired faculty and professional staff. While the events, initiatives and strategic plans of the Association are developed with general membership needs in mind, the Association also recognizes that FSA offerings may also meet the needs of para-professional members of the UB community. When appropriate, UB students or para-professionals are welcome to attend events and utilize the offerings of the FSA.
