Welcome to AAUW of Atlantic County, New Jersey.

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 our inception, we have donated scholarships that enabled generations of local women to fulfill their career potential.  We were 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.   Throughout the years, our branch has been a leader in community and school initiatives focused on innovative and inclusive educational projects.  Our members are lifelong learners who participate in our many 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.


Our chapter is very active with monthly programs, special interest groups, and community service projects.
