Affinity Groups

To help you continue to explore the challenges of equity and inclusion in creating supportive learning communities together, we are creating several future teacher affinity groups. There will be affinity groups for future teachers who identify within structurally minoritized and underrepresented communities as well as for future teachers from across all identities. These UOTeach Affinity groups are facilitated by educational professionals who are neither instructors nor supervisors for the UOTeach program.

Sign up here for the following UOTeach Affinity Groups

  1. Teacher of Color Affinity Group, Fall Dates: Sept 14 & 28, Oct 12 & 26, Nov 9 & 23 & Dec 14 (Sat 11:00am-12:30pm)
  2. Teachers who identify as LGBTQ Affinity Group, Fall Dates: Sept 14 & 28, Oct 12 & 26, Nov 9 & 23 & Dec 14 (Sat 11:00am-12:30pm)
