Palomar College Black Faculty and Staff Association (PBFSA)
We are a place of solitude to further the work and interests of Black faculty, staff, and students at Palomar College.
Founded in the summer of 2020, the mission of the Palomar Black Faculty and Staff Association (PBFSA) is to provide a place of solitude to further the work and interests of Black faculty, staff, and students at Palomar College. You can learn more about the organization and its members by reviewing the presentation from our Fall 2020 Kick-off event.
The protests arising from the killings and shootings of unarmed Black citizens since May 2020 reinvigorated the College’s efforts to serve students equitably. PBFSA is supporting social justice challenges institutionally through collaborating among ourselves and and lifting our voices to help the College make authentic structural changes. You can find more information about equity and diversity initiatives taking place at Palomar College at the DEI website.
The focus of our work remains, however, to more meaningfully engage with initiatives locally Black students attending Palomar and connecting with African American communities in North County San Diego.
PBFSA arranged an online Celebration of Black Excellence to commemorate African American History Month (better known as Black History Month) starting in February 2021 and continuing throughout the semester. This is a series of workshops and presentations centering around both historical and current topics in the African American community.
