Affinity Groups

Darden affinity groups provide an opportunity for alumni to connect with each other based on common interests. Affinity groups sponsor in-person educational and social events, online learning sessions and group discussions. Current affinity groups include:

  •  Alumnae (women), with regional groups in Washington, D.C., New York City and the Twin Cities.
  •  NetImpact, which is for alumni interested in the positive role of business in society. It is organized in collaboration with the Institute for Business in Society.
  •  IDEA Network, which is for alumni interested in entrepreneurship. It is organized in collaboration with the Batten Institute.

There are also several career-related groups that are managed by Alumni Career Services
