The Adirondack Branch of AAUW was established in 1920. We have about 70 members with diverse educational and employment backgrounds who work together to fulfill the mission of the American Association of University Women. The local branch is one of more than 40 branches which make up the New York State Division of AAUW.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW), a national organization, was founded in 1881 to promote equity for women, education and self-development over the life span, and positive societal change. Membership in a local branch bestows guest member status in all other AAUW branches.
Recent issues of our branch newsletter, Adirondack Glimpses, are on this site. The quarterly newsletter of the New York State AAUW, NYS Focus, is online, as well as the national AAUW Outlook magazine.

Study and interest groups usually meet monthly on a variety of days and times. At present there are two Literature groups, a Gourmet group, and a Travel group. New groups are formed based on members' requests and interests.
In addition to supporting the national AAUW Educational Opportunities Fund, the branch provides its own Adirondack Branch Memorial Scholarship. Through the years, contributions have been made to the fund to honor the memory of various members who have passed away. The scholarship is awarded annually to an area student presently attending an accredited college, working for a degree at the associates, bachelor or graduate level.
