Cheers for AAUW

March 16, 2012

I am thankful to be a part of AAUW. When I became a National Student Advisory Council member, I instantly joined a network of amazing women from all walks of life.

I have received great support from the AAUW Lakewood (CO) Branch and from professors — including Kari Kloos — and staff at Regis University to bring AAUW programs to my campus. For example, I’m organizing a screening of the documentary Miss Representation on Monday, March 26. Because of the great amount of interest in the film, we moved the venue from the small Walker Pub on campus to our Science Amphitheatre, which can hold a large number of people. We are all looking forward to a successful and fun event for our movie night.

I was also asked to join a panel presentation at the AAUW of Colorado state convention in Lone Tree, Colorado, in April. I plan to share my experiences working with AAUW and Regis University as well as the role of the National Student Advisory Council and my efforts to start an AAUW student organization on my campus.

I plan to write future blogs about the film screening, my other campus outreach efforts, the state convention, Regis University’s new AAUW branch, and the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders in June. I am truly humbled by the outpouring of help and support I have received from AAUW members and friends.
