BFSA Graduates Recognition Ceremony

24th Annual Graduates Recognition Ceremony

It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.

On behalf of the Black Faculty & Staff Association and our fellow Faculty Staff Associations (FSA’s) across Cal State San Marcos (Asian Pacific Islander Faculty Staff Association (APIFSA), Latino Association of Faculty & Staff (LAFS), Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer and Ally Faculty Staff Association (LGBTQA FSA), we join to share the news that the 2020 BFSA Sankofa Recognition Ceremony (for all Fall 2019, Spring 2020 and Summer 2020 Grads) will be rescheduled considering the COVID-19 health crisis. This decision was difficult to make; however, it is in line with the CSU Chancellor’s announcement and our University’s message that the CSU commencement ceremonies will be postponed across all 23 campuses.

During times such as these, we are reminded that our family, friends, and community are essential in contributing to the greater good as we focus on a common goal—combating the virus as quickly as we can—through social distancing.

 Our commitment to you is we will share information on new dates for our BFSA recognition ceremony and distribution of stoles when the time is right and we return to our normal routines.

 Know that we are extremely proud of all Cal State San Marcos students for the resiliency and flexibility shown as the campus transitions to a virtual learning environment. We look forward to celebrating the achievements and successes with all graduating seniors soon. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.
