Affinity Groups for Faculty/Staff

Affinity Groups for Faculty/Staff


As a Catholic and Marianist University, the University of Dayton encourages its members to collaborate in building community and to join in a quest for a more perfect human society. The University of Dayton recognizes the unique challenges faced by members of underrepresented and underserved groups in navigating the campus community. *UD is grateful to faculty and staff who assume leadership roles in Affinity Groups and their willingness to engage in initiatives and programs that strengthen the sense of belonging and connection to the University for faculty and staff. The faculty/staff affinity group guidelines provide a foundation for all University of Dayton Affinity Groups while providing some flexibility for groups to structure culturally appropriate to the group and its goals.
