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:
- An individual UNG alumnus or group of alumni indicate an interest and take the initiative; or
- Based upon perceptions of common bonds expressed by alumni, the Office of Alumni Relations initiates discussions and recruits alumni leadership.
Active Shared Interest Groups:
Next Level Latino Professionals association (LPA)
Next Level LPA (Latino Professionals Association) focuses on creating opportunities for professional growth, personal promotion, and networking to ensure UNG alumni continue to accomplish the next level in their professional careers as a united community of individuals with shared backgrounds and dreams. The group is open to all alumni and focuses on the challenges Latino alumni face today as they pursue a higher education and position themselves in the workplace
