Affinity Student Unions & Clubs

The Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement works closely with many of the student affinity and identity-based organizations. We support student initiatives, provide leadership development, and promote these important peer-to-peer spaces. Student affinity and identity-based organizations are intended to provide students with an opportunity to build community, support each other, and celebrate their identities. Although focused on a particular shared identity, such groups and activities are always open to all who want to learn.

You can find contact information for each organization here, but if you need help getting in touch with the club leaders feel free to email IME at For a list of all student organizations/clubs, please visit the Student Engagement Office. Thinking about starting a student affinity and identity-based organization? Please email IME at or Student Engagement Office to seek support in the process!
