The Atlantic County branch of the American Association of University Women was founded in 1917 by a group of proactive, professional women. They understood that higher education is the key to women achieving equality in the workplace and in society as a whole. Since its inception, our branch has donated scholarships that have enabled generations of local women to fulfill their career potential. Atlantic County AAUW was one of the first AAUW branches nationwide to implement the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum targeted to middle school girls through our Tech Trek camps in conjunction with Stockton University. This program, now expanded to a summer camp and winter session, gives girls the tools to broaden their thinking about future career paths. Throughout the years, our branch has always been a leader in initiatives that focus on innovative and inclusive educational projects. Our members are also lifelong learners who participate in a host of AAUW monthly interest groups.
AAUW is a nationwide network of more than 170,000 members and donors, 1,000 branches, and 800 college/university institution partners. AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political. Our commitment to our mission is reflected in all aspects of our work.
