Brandeis Faculty and Staff Pride Alliance

The Brandeis Faculty and Staff Pride Alliance (BFSPA) is open to all members of the faculty and staff who identify with the LGBTQIA+ community or wish to be part of the peer network that supports the LGBTQIA+ community on campus.

We are a faculty and staff association dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and allied members at Brandeis in their professional and community roles.

Brandeis Faculty and Staff Pride Alliance Monthly Meeting

Every month members of the BFSPA meet for a "bring your own lunch" in the Gender and Sexuality Center located in Usdan. We hope to offer the lunches starting every other month in the Shapiro Campus Center once those spaces start to have availability again. These lunches have no set agenda; just a place for individuals across campus who would like to spend their lunch with others in a safe place!
