College and University C/U Partnerships

*2021-22 updated brochure is coming soon…

Among the programs that AAUW Greensboro has helped C/U Partners implement are $tart $mart ($$),  Triad Tech Savvy, and Elect Her-Campus Women Win. One of the favorites is the $tart $mart Workshop led by a trained facilitator. (Several AAUW Branch members are facilitators. It is ideal for faculty members at College/University AAUW Partners to become trained facilitators.) The three hour interactive workshop helps young women applying for career positions:
· To learn the importance of making a budget.
· To recognize the kind of research that is essential before each interview.
· To practice interview negotiation skills related to salaries and benefits.

C/U Partners are notified of the AAUW Greensboro annual supplementary scholarship/monies to support attendance of selected students to attend AAUW National Conference of College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) and are expected to advertise this opportunity to their respective student bodies and help recruit applicants.  NCCWSL is held usually in late May at the University of Maryland, College Park and is a leadership training program to connect and inspire young women across the country to become active and engaged on their campuses and their communities.

To provide these programs at AAUW Greensboro’s five active College/University Partners, we depend on the help and support of the C/U Representatives. Members of the C/U Liaison Committee assist each of the C/U Representatives in on-going ways to implement AAUW programs and to provide some of the materials needed.

The C/U Committee Chair is Dr. Saundra Yates Evans. Saundra’s position is to coordinate the AAUW Branch Liaison members with the C/U Partnership representatives from each campus.

We value our members, associates, and affiliations with our local
colleges and universities. Working with the following campus liaisons,
the AAUW Greensboro Branch C/U Committee plans events and
programs, coordinates stipends and fellowships, and generally supports
our shared mission of equity and opportunity for women and girls.
