American Association of University Women of Virginia

Membership Information

In principle and in practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. 
There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or class.

Membership in AAUW has always been open to those with bachelor’s or higher degree from an accredited institution. At the 2005 National Convention it was decided to also accept anyone with an associate’s degree or equivalent.  Undergraduates enrolled in a regionally accredited two- or four-year institution may become student affiliates. 

There are several membership categories:

  • Branch members join one of the branches across the State of Virginia to carry out grassroots efforts.
  • Virginia Members-at-large affiliate directly with the State and National Association.
  • Branch student affiliates and student affiliates-at-large are undergraduates enrolled in regionally accredited two- or four-year institutions.

College/University (C/U) Members are accredited institutions of higher education. 
Each member institution selects a representative to link the campus with AAUW 
and to work with other C/U representatives across the nation.
