Affinity Groups for Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students
Affinity groups provide forums for employees to gather socially and share ideas outside their particular campus departments. The benefits of an affinity group are to promote the value of diversity and cultural awareness and to foster an environment that attracts, welcomes and retains diverse talent.
