Welcome to the Vancouver (WA) Branch of AAUW
Welcome to an organization of university women based in Vancouver, Washington. Vancouver is located in the southwest corner of Washington state along the Columbia River in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Vancouver AAUW draws its members from the city of Vancouver as well as several surrounding cities and counties.
Our association, a branch of state and national organizations, was founded in 1931 and has worked since that time as a group of convivial, like-minded members promoting the education and welfare of girls and women on local, state and national levels. AAUW Vancouver gives its members the opportunity to work towards significant goals, make friends and enjoy one another’s company and continue their personal education through programs, interest groups and events. We strongly support the National AAUW goals and vision statement.
The mission of AAUW is to advance equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.
Vision Statement: AAUW will be a powerful advocate and visible leader in equity and education through research, philanthropy, and measurable change in critical areas
impacting the lives of women and girls.
Please contact us with any questions you have about our branch – or you might enjoy having a current member take you to our next branch event so you can personally sample what our organization has to offer. We would welcome your involvement.
Dee Brookshire, President
