Affinity Group Dialogues

Affinity Groups are small groups designed to be spaces for similarly identified folks to come together as caucuses.

Affinity Groups

Affinity Groups are facilitated by Affinity Group Leaders (AGL’s) and will meet regularly throughout the semester as determined by the AGL. Group topics may range from simple check-ins to discussions of relevant topics.
