Affinity Groups

Coalition of Diverse Faculty and Staff

SUNY Oneonta seeks to foster an environment that supports the voices of employees from diverse backgrounds in order to create a greater sense of community. The Office of Equity and Inclusion invites members of the campus community to join the Coalition of Diverse Faculty and Staff - an Affinity Group for Faculty and Staff from Underrepresented Racial & Ethnic Backgrounds and their Allies. Please indicate your interest by completing this online form.

The goals of CODIFAST are as follows

  • Offer a venue for cross-campus exchange of ideas, socializing, networking, and mentoring.
  • Provide opportunities for faculty and staff to establish support groups, feel connected and learn from and support each other.
  • Provide a venue to continue to gather feedback on ways to further provide appropriate support for employees and continue to build a sense of community.
  • Provide opportunities for professional development.
