Clubs and Affinity Groups

This board focuses on supporting student engagement through Clubs and Affinity Groups. The goal of this Board is to ensure that students who are interested in connecting with others in their social identity group and/or with folks with shared interests have what they need to do so in a supportive, fun environment. This Board provides structure and logistical support to Student Organizations and contributes to the equity, diversity and inclusion of our campus community.

Benefits of Joining a Student Organization
