Affinity Chapters

Our University of Portland affinity chapters reflect, celebrate, and cultivate the shared areas of interest of our alumni. These groups focus on affinities ranging from professional to social and cultural.

In keeping with the goals set by the Office of Alumni & Parent Relations in July 2020, we are partnering with alumni volunteers to create identity-based affinity chapters. Our office is currently talking with alumni about how to best create a supportive chapter structure for Multi-Cultural affinity programming.

We invite all alumni to read a message from a committee of fellow UP alumni and take a quick survey to help us better understand our alumni demographics, as well as learn more about an invitation for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) alumni to participate in a BIPOC Chapter. 

To inquire about getting involved as an alumni leader or about starting a new affinity chapter, contact Anna Horlacher, Associate Director, Affinity Engagement.
