Black Affinity Group

A Wisconsin Alumni Association Group

Our purpose is to build an inclusive local community of UW alumni and supporters united by Badger pride, spirit, and the desire to advance UW–Madison’s positive impact on the world.


The Black Affinity Group works to promote the welfare and advancement of objectives affecting the success of prospective, current and former Black students and faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our goal is to activate and empower the alumni network by providing a forum for engagement, mentorship, stewardship and advocacy that promotes the vision of our experiences of the Wisconsin Idea from the campus to our communities.

Join our Affinity Group Celebration on August 3, when Badgers of all ages will gather on campus for family-friendly fun. Learn more and RSVP by July 31.
