Affinity Groups

Affinity groups bring together Cooper alumni with shared professional interests for networking, mentoring, or general support. The Office of Alumni Affairs and Development hosts organized events for affinity groups each semester but members are also encouraged to gather and connect on their own.

The CU on Wall Street group includes alumni whose careers and interests have led them to all avenues of the financial services industry. Leveraging their degrees in art, architecture and engineering to catapult them in new directions, the group includes alumni who are industry leaders as well as emerging entrepreneurs.
