Branch Membership in AAUW

AAUW branches are groups of local AAUW members working together in their communities for the greater good of women and girls. This network of nearly 1,000 branches across the US – including Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and Puerto Rico – are the heart of the organization.

What do branch members do?

In addition to national opportunities offered to all AAUW members, branch members enjoy networking at the local level, serving in local and state leadership roles, sponsoring community action projects, and lobbying on AAUW priority issues. If you enjoy this level of activism and engagement, then branch membership is the right choice for you!

Our Vision is Simple

We bring people together for the common goal of breaking through educational and economic barriers for women and girls.

Our Mission is Sound

Advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

Membership is open to anyone holding an associate or equivalent (RN), baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university.

Student Affiliation
