Faculty and staff Diversity Affinity Groups foster cross-departmental social interaction, professional networking, cultural competencies, recruiting and mentoring. The Diversity Affinity Groups also serve as an outlet for faculty and staff to come together and fellowship with group members who share common cultural experiences while providing a space for members to engage in relevant discussions that are pertinent to the respective communities.
