Think College Affinity Groups

Learn - Share - Connect. Think College Affinity Groups


*An affinity group is 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.
