Maxwell is home to five different affinity groups for faculty, staff, alumni and graduate students of color, as well as for international graduate students. These school-wide groups bring together individuals with a similar identity to provide community and additional mentoring and to empower them during their time in Maxwell. They are intended to complement similar groups across the broader campus and aim to fill gaps to ensure we are creating an environment where everyone feels they belong.
To learn about existing groups in Maxwell, join them or voice your interest in establishing other groups, please contact:
