American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a nationwide network of more than 170,000 members and donors, 1,000 branches, and 800 college/university institution partners. For 130 years, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
AAUW Greensboro is one of approximately twenty local branches in North Carolina. With over 75 members and several college/university partner affiliates, the organization meets monthly from September to April. In addition, we hold special events of interest to members and of service to women and girls in Greensboro such as $tart$mart and TriadTechSavvy.
