The University of Virginia Women's Club was founded in the 1948-1949 academic year as the Faculty Wives Club “to promote sociability.” In 1991, the name was changed to The UVa Women’s Club and member eligibility was expanded. Today, Women’s Club welcomes all university women. Retired members even have their own special events.
The Women’s Club offers a full year of events including annual meetings with speakers, gatherings for new members, special events and trips, philanthropy projects, and interest groups. It gives university women the opportunity to meet other women and families from all schools and departments across Grounds.
Browse the website to learn more about the various opportunities to participate. We welcome new members, so if you are interested in joining, see our Membership page. You can also contact me personally..

Annual Fall Meeting
Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2:00-4:00 pm, at St. Paul's Espicopal Church in Ivy. Meet new and old friends, sign up for interest groups, and hear The University of Virginia Dean of Students office bring us up to date on new and improved ways that the University is dealing with the threats, experience and memories of sexual assault, so starkly brought to our attention last year. It's a grim topic BUT the creative responses are not grim. I think you'll leave the meeting with renewed pride in the University.
