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 Women’s Club and member eligibility was expanded to include non-faculty employees, as well. Today, Women’s Club welcomes all university women.
Women’s Club offers a full year of events including annual meetings with interesting 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 contact me personally by phone or email.
