Student Affinity Groups
The Office of Justice, Equity, and Transformation (JET) is committed to supporting and providing affinity space for students to come together, build community, talk about issues, celebrate cultures, and share resources.
Affinity groups allow students who share an identity—usually a marginalized identity—to gather, talk in a safe space about issues related to that identity, and transfer that discussion into action that makes for a more equitable experience at school.
Below is a listing of MassArt’s student affinity groups. If you are interested in joining any of these groups or starting a new group, then let us know by completing this interest form.
Queer Artist Collective (QAC)
The Queer Artist Collective is comprised of a group of students on MassArt’s campus who identify within the LGBTQ+ community. The hope for this group is to provide continued support for queer students and allow them a safe space to gather, share ideas, critique work, celebrate, learn, and build community.
Black Artist Union (BAU)
The Black Artist Union is MassArt’s oldest student lead group on campus. BAU is a community that consists of MassArt undergraduates, graduates, alumni, faculty, and staff. We aim to support each other in whatever ways possible and share our art and voices with the rest of the MassArt community, Boston, and beyond.
