Think College Affinity Groups
Affinity Group: A group of people who come together based on areas of common interest and need.
The Think College National Coordinating Center hosts Affinity Groups on topics related to higher education for students with intellectual disability. Meetings are primarily online, and new members are always welcome! Affinity groups offer the opportunity for in-depth focus on a single topic in collaboration with others. Each group gives members a forum for exchanging knowledge, and for problem-solving based on people's real experiences. These groups can break down networking, communication, and organizational barriers, and extend each member’s range of contacts and knowledge.
