Membership

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

AAUW believes that together we can transform society for the better. Our vision is simple — we bring people together united behind the common goal of breaking through educational and economic barriers for women and girls. By joining our more than 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 branches, and 800 college/university institutional partners, you become part of AAUW’s powerful voice.

Since its first meeting in 1881, AAUW has been a catalyst for change. When more than a century ago a Harvard physician claimed that higher education jeopardized women’s health, AAUW conducted research that proved he was wrong. When the number of female college students grew, AAUW funded fellowships to support them. When girls and boys were treated differently in school, AAUW research put gender bias on the national agenda. When women receive less pay than their male colleagues for the same job, AAUW continues researching, educating, and advocating for equity.

We invite you to learn more about the value of belonging and to become a part of this smart, passionate, and creative community.
