The group's mission shall be to foster and strengthen the bond between the University of Chicago and its alumni who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), who are an integral part of the life of the University; to foster interest in and to disseminate information about the University, most specifically with regard to LGBT issues; to provide fellowship, support and service to LGBT Alumni; and to strengthen the role played by LGBT alumni in the life of the University.

Membership: Membership is free and open to all alumni, parents, and friends, and you can join by signing in to the group’s website, attending an LGBT Alumni-sponsored event, or emailing affinity@uchicago.edu.

Affinity groups are a means through which members of the UChicago community can continue their association with the University by engaging with each other around shared interests and shared identities. Affinity networks are global in reach, offering professional, educational, and social programming. Affinity groups complement the work of the alumni clubs, class councils, and professional alumni associations.
