Currently, there are several affinity groups throughout the SUNY system that offer the opportunity to network with your colleagues in similar fields. These groups are volunteer managed by your peers. Some groups simply maintain an email list or listserv so you can ask questions and share information; other groups also organize networking events and trainings.
Following are the current groups and their primary contact person. Feel free to reach out to person listed to get connected and find out more about what that group has to offer!
