The Vanderbilt Alumni Association seeks to expand its shared interest groups, which bring together alumni with a common interest or connection, such as undergraduate student organizations, sports, clubs, social/ethnic groups and more. These groups can come together for educational and social events, networking, and connecting with on-campus groups—essentially functioning as alumni organizations under their own leadership.
The Office of Alumni Relations supports these groups by helping them find other interested alumni and by providing Web and social media tools. Current groups include the Association of Vanderbilt Black Alumni, Navy ROTC, Asian American Alumni Association, baseball alumni, Army ROTC and LGBTQI.
If you are interested in joining or forming a new shared interest group, contact Chris Griffin, special interest liaison, at (615) 322-4405 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You also may go to vanderbilt.edu/alumni/shared-interest.
