About Us

What is the Women's Club?

The University Women’s Club was founded in 1921 with the stated objectives of furthering the educational aims of the University and of promoting closer relationships between members and a warm and friendly atmosphere in the University community. It was, and continues to be, primarily composed of the wives of active and retired faculty and administrative officers, although we have members who are themselves faculty or administrative officers.

Over the intervening decades, the organization has evolved in ways that reflect the many changes in the lives of women associated with the University and the decreasing role of social organizations in our culture. Many faculty wives arrive at the University juggling children, careers, and/or other commitments. In addition, many of us work or reside at a significant distance from the campus itself. Nevertheless, we strive to include all eligible women associated with the University – from athletics to the professional schools – within the Club. We feel confident that each member can find or create interests in common with other members and receive personal benefit from the Club at any level of participation.

Who Can Join?

Members include wives of current or retired faculty or administrative officers and women who are current or retired faculty or administrative officers of the University. In addition, women who are clinical or adjunct faculty, visiting faculty, or athletic coaches (or the wives of men in these positions with the University) are eligible.

In general, women who support the University in its educational or professional endeavors, but who are not eligible to join the administrative employees organization, will be considered eligible for membership in the UWC. Individuals who have been active members of the UWC may continue their membership after their official association with the University has ended.
