Affinity Groups


What is an Affinity Group?

Here at NCTC we are dedicated to not only recognizing but reaching out and lifting up the portions of our student population who may be balancing life challenges on multiple levels. If you identity with one or more of these Affinity Groups, we are here to stand beside you to overcome these challenges and learn that none of these circumstances should get in the way of reaching your goals. For each of these Affinity Groups we offer specialized mentorship as well as tools to connect you to allies and advocates with similar backgrounds from within our staff and student body. We look forward to partnering with you, hearing your story and elevating your voice.

Affinity Group Mentors Are Here For You

An Affinity Group mentor is a specially appointed NCTC staff or faculty member who has a particular passion and knowledge concerning the issues facing their chosen Affinity Group. It’s the role of these mentors to help their students achieve success with the most effective tool for the student’s needs, be it a useful resource, a guiding hand, an encouraging word, or a listening ear.
