This is one of the newest branches of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). We advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. AAUW is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. Since our founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
Traditionally the AAUW mission has been carried forward by members in local groups (called “branches”) that sponsor projects, programs, informal gatherings, and special events. As women’s lives have become busier, the members who participate in these local groups have become a smaller portion of the total membership — more and more members are joining as National Members, connecting to AAUW as individuals and forgoing the benefits of close connections to other members.
This new branch provides a different kind of community for those National Members. Those in areas of the state where there is no location-based branch and those for whom location-based branches are not a good “fit” are invited to join the AAUW Maryland On-Line Community which serves the entire state of North Carolina.
As a member, you will get copies of the AAUW Maryland newsletters – the Marylander – and be “in the loop” on AAUW issues affecting the state. You’ll also be connected to the national AAUW community and receive all the benefits of belonging to that powerful network.
