CASFAA Executive Council joins the call to end systemic racism, racial violence against communities of color, and honors the right of free speech and non-violent protest.  In support of CASFAA’s mission, we promote a culture of diversity and inclusion to all our members and the students we serve.  Our membership consists of Financial Aid professionals from diverse backgrounds and experiences, servicing students in urban, rural, traditional and progressive areas.  Our diversity gives us strength as an organization. CASFAA shares a fundamental understanding that there is no room for racism.  We are in discussion about what we must do to effect change within our organization and in society.  We ask and challenge you with the task of working together and collaborating across all races, cultures and ethnicities to effect change. We cannot rely on people of color to bear the burden of change as confronting racial inequalities is a lifelong endeavor that we must all pursue.  We can use our influence to advance equity, inspire healing, create empathy, and understanding to bridge differences and to remove barriers for the health of our society.  CASFAA is proud of the diligent work that we do to serve our members and to ensure the students we serve succeed in their educational endeavors.
