Johns Hopkins Affinity Groups and Communities


Connect with alums who share your passions, profession, or personal interests through Affinity.

Affinity communities are groups of alumni, students, and friends of the university who are drawn together based on common interests and shared experiences. Interacting in person and virtually, our communities encompass all divisions, graduating classes, regions, and professions and reflect a remarkable diversity of concerns and activities.

 

Here's what becoming part of a Hopkins affinity group means to you and your fellow community members:

  • Connecting and networking opportunities
  • Professional and personal development
  • Education and exploration
  • Information and resources sharing
  • A sense of community and shared values
