African American Affinity Group

A Wisconsin Alumni Association Group

Our group’s mission is to support the improvement of university policies as they relate to underrepresented students, create spaces for alumni to connect both professionally and socially, and provide opportunities for alumni to contribute to student success.


The African American Affinity Group works to promote the welfare and advancement of objectives affecting the success of prospective, current and former Black students and faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our goal is to activate and empower the alumni network by providing a forum for engagement, mentorship, stewardship and advocacy that promotes the vision of our experiences of the Wisconsin Idea from the campus to our communities.
