Affinity Communities

Affinity groups are based on a shared identity or common goal to enhance community and networking among members of underserved student populations.  

Our intention with these pages is to:

  • Foster community and inclusion through mentors, allies, and peers

  • Advocate for programs and events to meet the needs of underserved student populations, such as: student-centered career consulting and events, our JCPenney Suite-Up event, Runway to Career Success Fashion Show, funds to support internships, Diversity Roundtables, Multicultural Career Fair Flip, and the B-Money Smart financial wellness programming

  • Increase awareness of marginalized group’s perspectives and concerns

*We recognize the intersectionality of individual identities and recommend that you join any affinity group that you identify with to connect to networks and explore helpful resources.
