Affinity Groups

Senior officers from each community college are organized into affinity groups around a particular focus. The role of affinity groups is to share information and develop statewide initiatives related to their areas of expertise. There are 40 affinity groups working to achieve continuous improvement in all aspects of Maryland’s community colleges.
