Interest Groups

The Alumni Association supports affinity groups based on shared professions, interests, and personal identities. These groups are developing into great ways to build a network of UChicago alumni with a common connection. Active affinity groups include the Chicago Women's Alliance, the LGBT Alumni Network, and the UChicago Association of Black Alumni. To learn more, get involved, or to start a new group, please visit or email If you are interested in learning more about a specific group you find below, visit the link, or feel free to look up your fellow alumnus via the Alumni Directory.
