About Efferson Student Union & Activities

The Efferson Student Union and Activities Staff is dedicated to improving the quality of campus life for all Florida A&M University students.  We achieve this by providing quality programs and activities that allow students to develop as individuals and find their place in the larger campus and world communities. 


Mission & Vision

The Efferson Student Union and Activities actively support the mission of Florida A&M University and the Division of Student Affairs by providing support services that facilitate the development and implementation of varies cultural, educational and social activities and programs to enhance student life. These activities engage the interaction and support from the administration, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community. The total development of the student is paramount to the success of the individual student and the activities, programs, groups, organizations, and clubs that are available to the University's student body. These experiences will ultimately increase the retention and graduation rate of the student body as they become more involved with the total institutional educational experience. 


Role of the College Union

The college union advances a sense of community, unifying the institution by embracing the diversity of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests. We bolster the educational mission of the institution and the development of students as lifelong learners by delivering an array of cultural, educational, social, and recreational programs, services, and facilities.  

By any form or name, we serve as the heart of the campus community and create a welcoming environment by:  

  • Operating as a student-centered organization that engages in shared decision making and holistic development through employment and involvement.  
  • Advocating for inclusivity and equity, fostering respect, and affirming the identities of all individuals.
  • Educating students in leadership and social responsibility and offering firsthand experiences in global citizenship.
  • Providing gathering spaces to encourage formal and informal community interactions that build meaningful relationships.  

Traditionally considered the living room, the college union enhances the student experience and cultivates an enduring connection to the institution.
