South Asian Affinity Group (SAAG)

The South Asian Affinity Group (SAAG) is a platform for people who are interested in sharing, contributing or just learning about culture of South Asia. You do not have to be necessarily an employee of South Asian origin. Your curiosity to know or interact with us is good enough reason to be part of us.

Our Mission

To develop a network of existing employees to identify common concerns and become an important resource for the University for sharing the information. To welcome new employees to Princeton and educate them about tremendous resources this University provides for their assimilation into diverse family of employees.

We strive to encourage members to meet periodically to share experiences and thoughts. Celebrate cultural & social events that interest most of the membership. To reach out other ERG groups, other groups/clubs managed by faculty and students and other non-profit organizations outside Princeton University to foster a healthy climate for sharing useful information and supporting common interests.
