AAUW Student Organizations

AAUW Student Organizations (SO) energize students committed to gender equity and connect them with a wealth of resources on issues they care about like fair pay, student loan debt, gender issues, violence against women, and more.

Already have a core group of AAUW student affiliates or students interested in equity for women and girls? Establish a nationally recognized AAUW Student Organization.
