Now Announcing…October 20, 2008
AAUW has selected the new Student Advisory Council (SAC) for the 2008–09 year! We received a large number of applications this year, and we are heartened by how many wonderful women leaders there are across the country.
The 10 women selected for this year’s council come from a variety of backgrounds and have held a range of leadership positions on their campuses. We are excited to have them involved with AAUW as advisers and local leaders. The SAC members will also attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders in June 2009 as student leaders.
