Spending time with others who share the same identifier(s) is a critical component in navigating the Taft community. Affinity groups not only serve as support networks for students and faculty, but also a safe place to explore and discuss various aspects of the Taft student life experience. Affinity groups are student-led and run. There is a faculty advisor who oversees each group, but the students organize and structure the meeting and conversation. Each group views its roles differently, based on the needs of the members.
