The Mission of the AAUW is to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy. Since its founding in Boston in 1881, AAUW has been a catalyst for change. Our nonpartisan, nonprofit organization has more than 170,000 members and supporters across the United States, as well as 1,000 local branches and over 800 college and university partners. Throughout our history, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
Local branches throughout Arizona work in concert with the State AAUW to empower and educate women through our scholarships, workshops and forums. The Flagstaff Branch partners with our local educational institutions – Coconino Community College and Northern Arizona University – to promote opportunities for women and girls throughout northern Arizona.
