The American Association of University Women was founded in 1881 to help women obtain a college education and to make the fullest use of their education. There are now more than 100,000 AAUW members in more than 1000 branches and 800 college and university partners in the United States. Today AAUW’s mission is to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy.
The branch furthers the national mission and initiatives while promoting and designing local, cultural, environmental, and educational programs with annual contributions to the National Educational Foundation, the Legal Advocacy Fund and STEM programs. Scholarships are annually awarded to women furthering their college education.
Membership is open to anyone holding an Associate, Baccalaureate or higher degree from an accredited college or university.
In-person meetings are held at the Burlington County Library in Westampton.
