Our History

The Raleigh Branch, organized February 12, 1909, is North Carolina’s oldest AAUW branch and the third oldest branch in the South Atlantic; after Richmond and Atlanta. These three originated as branches of the Southern Association of College Women and became extensions of AAUW when the Association of Collegiate Alumnae (organized in 1881) merged in 1921 with the Southern Association of College Women (organized in 1903.) This all came to form the American Association of University Women (now known as AAUW). The name was changed in 1997-98 to Raleigh/Wake County Branch.

We are proud that the AAUW Raleigh/Wake County branch turned 100 years old in 2009. We celebrated this fabulous milestone with a reception and brief program on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at Meredith College. Our members are a warm, well-educated mix of active or retired academics, public administrators and executives. Our meetings are lively, full of debate, brainstorming, news and support. We welcome you to explore our site, see who we are, what we do and how to become involved. We welcome newcomers and hope to see you soon!
