Affinity Groups and Committees
The Office of Alumni Engagement strives to create numerous ways for alumni to engage
with one another, students, and the University to ensure your experience is meaningful. In
efforts to do just that, we have various Affinity Groups and Committees that enable
opportunity to remain connected with IWU and fellow alumni.
Each Affinity Group and Committee has their own mission and purpose. Leadership from
each group and committee reports to the Alumni Association Board of Directors. View
