Asian, Asian American Pacific Islander Faculty and Staff Caucus
The Asian, Asian American Pacific Islander Faculty and Staff Caucus at LSU was founded in May 2021 in the wake of the increase in violence against our community during the pandemic. The organization provides solidarity and support to A/AAPI faculty, staff, and students to ensure that LSU upholds its responsibilities to us. We believe that the caucus must empower the A/AAPI community to speak out against anti-Asian violence, xenophobia, and racism, by helping to provide appropriate channels for redressal. Importantly, we also aim to foster awareness of A/AAPI issues through year-long educational and cultural programming and social events. The caucus thus advocates for the inclusion of the A/AAPI community as stakeholders in every aspect of university life.
Black Faculty and Staff Caucus
The Black Faculty & Staff Caucus’ (BFSC) purpose is to ensure and maintain equitable treatment of African American faculty and staff in promotions and job opportunities. The organization shall serve as an advocate for educational equity and a work environment free of racial tensions and biases with the liberty of investigating and addressing concerns. BFSC shall also monitor and address retention of minority faculty, staff and students. The organization shall provide assistance, education and social interaction for faculty, staff and students through workshops, lectures, seminars, meetings, professional development opportunities and employee assistance programs within and outside the University community. Any employee of LSU is welcome to join!

LGBTQ+ Faculty and Staff Caucus
The LGBTQ+ Faculty and Staff Caucus seeks to (1) serve the special needs of LGBTQ+ employees by promoting understanding of LGBTQ+ concerns and providing assistance, education, and social interaction for the employees; and (2) provide for LGBTQ+ employees and students a proactive organization capable of reviewing complaints, addressing problems, and, when necessary, informing the University administration of these concerns by making recommendations as required to resolve these issues.
