Affinity Groups | University of Portland

Affinity Groups

Affinity groups are an opportunity for people to connect with others who share salient aspects of their identity. These groups are particularly helpful for historically minoritized and underrepresented individuals to gather in community. Affinity groups, however, are not employee resource groups. 

We are so grateful to the staff and faculty who have dedicated their time and energy to establishing and maintaining affinity groups at the University of Portland. The current active groups are listed below. 

At the University of Portland, affinity groups are led by faculty and staff on campus so that the programming and engagement remain true to the groups themselves. 

Here is information on how to start an affinity group. For further questions, please contact
