The following constitutes a working draft of our mission.

The Alliance of Ferris Employees (AFE) is a professional organization whose mission is to foster greater tolerance for and acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people and the allies of LGBTQ people. The AFE seeks to build an inclusive Ferris State University that is welcoming of LGBTQA employees and their families through education and advocacy. The Alliance draws inspiration from the University's definition of diversity, which includes sexual orientation and gender identity, and it joins with the University's leadership in supporting the University's goal of hiring and retaining a diverse workforce.
