Shared Interest Groups at the University of North Georgia are communities of alumni that share a common affinity or bond based on shared experience, identity, background, academic affiliation, profession or other UNG-related interest.

Shared Interest Groups are formed in one of two ways:

  1. An individual UNG alumnus or group of alumni indicate an interest and take the initiative; or

  2. Based upon perceptions of common bonds expressed by alumni, the Office of Alumni Relations initiates discussions and recruits alumni leadership.
