Join an Affinity Group Today!
FIU strives to strengthen faculty and staff belonging through affinity groups. Employee-initiated affinity groups provide faculty and staff with the opportunity to share interests and experiences. FIU encourages the creation of new affinity groups and will support the planning, implementation, and promotion of their mission-driven activities.

Faculty and staff can submit the Affinity Group Proposal Form to propose a new affinity group. To be recognized as an affinity group, you must have the following:

  • One lead; one co-lead
  • Must have at least 5 total members
  • Defined purpose and goals
  • Leadership roles, responsibilities, and terms of office
  • Membership Information
  • Programs, initiatives, and activities
  • Process of financial reporting (if dues will be collected)

Are you interested in joining or creating an affinity group?
