K-State women students:

Are you a college student passionate about women's issues such as gender fairness, pay equity, individual rights, social justice for a diverse society, and educational and career advancement? Want to make change on K-State's campus and network with leaders, mentors and friends? Do you want to meet like-minded women students who are ready to take a stand for women's equality, gain leadership skills, and connect with national community of 80 American Association of University Women student organizations and 170,000 members? Look no further than student membership in the association and working with us in starting a student organization on K-State's campus.

The American Association of University Women, or AAUW, Manhattan Branch invites all K-State undergraduate and graduate students to an informational meeting from 4:30-6 p.m. Dec. 2 in 127 Leadership Studies Building.

Branch members will help you explore our rich history, benefits of membership, and plans to start a student chapter. We also encourage you to join the official AAUW student org Facebook group to get updates from the National office and connect with student leaders across the country. Because K-State is an official university partner, all undergraduates can obtain a free national membership just by signing up online or by coming to the meeting.

As the premiere women's organization in the U.S., AAUW has made significant strides in increasing the equity, educational, professional, and leadership opportunities, since its founding in 1881. It also is one of the major sources of collegiate funding for women, awarding about $4 million annually. Membership in AAUW will enable you to join the legacy of women who have changed and will change the world.
