Affinity Groups

Affinity Groups

In an intentional effort to strengthen our mission to promote diversity and inclusion at the University of North Alabama, the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion is proud to present four new affinity groups.

Affinity groups are formed around a shared identity or common bond. Affinity groups are not formally designed, but rather sites of organic community engagement that allow students to share experiences and create connection. It is our hope that the affinity groups create welcoming environments where all students can safely and proudly be their authentic selves. 

In essence, affinity groups:

  • foster inclusion through peer support and socialization.
  • provide a sense of security, support, and acceptance.
  • offer visibility for a minority group’s perspectives.
  • create engagement through specialized communities.

We are honored to provide space bringing these important groups together on our campus.
