Make a Difference! 

Learn New Things! Meet New Friends!  Have Fun!

Just over 110 years ago a small group of women graduates in Ann Arbor gathered together to form the Ann Arbor Branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni – the forerunner of AAUW.  Today we are a vibrant, active group of some 300 intellectually curious women, devoted to improving the lives of women and girls through education.  Along the way we manage to improve our own lives – and have a lot of fun.  We welcome new members.

The AAUW Ann Arbor Branch Offers

  • A group of educated women with diverse backgrounds and experiences
    • Informative and stimulating monthly programs
    • More than 35 small interest groups covering a wide range of topics and activities
    • A used book sale that raises money for national fellowships, local scholarships, and awards to graduating high school seniors
    • Community outreach activities like Brains Rule! and Let’s Read Math
    • Membership in national and state AAUW organizations

Visitors are welcome at all branch meetings. For more information about meeting times and locations, visit the Programs page or contact us.

Performance Network Theatre: Possibilities and Challenges
John Manfredi
John Manfredi is Executive Director of the Performance Network Theatre, owner of Etico Productions LLC (a Michigan consulting and production company), and an award-winning actor and director. The off-Broadway quality productions of Performance Network, Ann Arbor’s only professional Equity theater company, have long been a significant addition to the cultural life of the city. Mr. Manfredi took over as Executive Director last July, after financial problems had forced the theater to close.  By September the company was back in business with a new production of “Driving Miss Daisy”; his talk will describe the challenges involved in bringing it back to life and future plans for the operation.

Successful Book Sale News

Members of the Ann Arbor branch work hard virtually all year round to make our annual Used Book Sale a success, and through their efforts we raise thousands of dollars for scholarships for women.  Read the final report of the 2014 sale or check out Polly Pan’s AAUW Funds Report for 2014 to learn exactly how we disburse all that money.
