Affinity Groups

An Alumni Affinity Group is any group of alumni having a common interest or affiliation, whether through degree, major, ethnicity, geographic region, athletic or student club involvement, The ultimate purpose of Alumni Affinity Groups is to support the college, its goals, and its core values. Affinity Groups may focus on a variety of activities, including lifelong learning, social or business networking, family friendly activities, civic engagement, and/or community service.  Please explore the Alumni Affinity Groups established for Hanover College below.  

alumni committees

Keeping in mind the goal of having alumni involved in the life of the college, the College has established a number of Alumni Advisory Committees. These committees provide important support to various areas and programs within the institution. These committees are formed around specific tasks and responsibilities and are supported by college employees. Alumni are invited to join for a specific period of time, a year or two, and are appointed by the President of Hanover College. Once fully formed, the committees elect a representative to the Alumni Leadership Council.
