Affinity Groups

RISD Alumni Association Affinity groups connect alumni to each other and to the institution. 

Members of affinity groups interact in person and virtually—from hosting events to serving the global community to providing networking opportunities and beyond.

Membership in RISD’s affinity groups is open to all alumni, graduate or non-graduate, who attended RISD for at least a year, as well as any recipient of a graduate degree from Rhode Island School of Design.

We invite you to learn more and get involved with one or more of our established groups.
