About Us

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a national organization that promotes equity for all women and girls, lifelong education, and positive social change. AAUW offers scholarships, action for gender equity, and support for personal and professional growth, community leadership, and friendship.

AAUW in Our City

Members enjoy the opportunity to meet other educated women in our regular meetings and social gatherings geared toward their special interests. Our monthly meetings feature speakers discussing current events, women’s issues, and various topics of lifelong learning.


AAUW is dedicated to education and with this as our primary focus, we offer annual collegiate scholarships to local residents.  We also contribute to the AAUW Fund, which supports graduate students, funds national research studies, and through the Legal Advocacy Fund supports women fighting discriminatory practices at higher education institutions.
