AAUW offers many campus leadership programs. Join hundreds of other college students next year for the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. You can also bring leadership trainings like Elect Her – Campus Women Win to your own campus, or take what you learn at NCCWSL and bring it back to your school.


4. You can find your voice.

Whether you attend the Finding Your Voice session at NCCWSL, use our advocacy resources, or become a two-minute activist, we help E-SAFs speak up and take action.


5. You join a legacy of women who have changed and will change the world.

Since 1881, many AAUW members have shaped and changed the world. As students, you are the emerging leaders among us, making a change in today’s world.


6. Enjoy the perks!


E-SAFs get access to Outlook, our award-winning magazine where we explore issues related to women in education and the workplace, including Title IX, sexual harassment, and activism! You’re also first in line in the application review process for programs like Campus Action Projects and the National Student Advisory Council.


Best of all, it’s free! Join AAUW, tell your friends, and start an AAUW student organization right on your campus. If one exists, join, and make them a stronger, louder force on campus!
