Join Us


Now more than ever, AAUW (American Association of University Women) needs strength in numbers. With approximately 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 branches, and almost 800 college and university partner members, AAUW uses its powerful voice on critical issues affecting women and girls.

Join in the commitment to speak out on STEM education, funding for public education, global issues such as human trafficking, salary negotiation, advocacy for Title IX, civil rights, and women's health.

Membership in the State College Branch means you belong to a group of approximately 155 active community women.

Who Can Join?

If you hold an associate or equivalent (RN), baccalaureate, or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university, you are eligible to join AAUW. Graduate students may join for the reduced rate of $22.81 for their first year of membership. If you are an undergraduate in a two-or four-year regionally accredited educational institution, you can join as a student affiliate. An E-student affiliate (ESAF) attends an AAUW partner institution; a student affiliate (SAF) does not.

Member Benefits

State College Branch membership also includes membership in the national AAUW organization and AAUW Pennsylvania.

Members receive AAUW’s award-winning magazine AAUW Outlook, which highlights issues and individuals affecting women and girls today, and Action Network briefs that alert you to congressional actions on issues that can change your life. Members also receive Keystoner from AAUW Pennsylvania, the Branch annual Handbook and Directory, and Branching Out, the branch newsletter that details upcoming programs as well as issues concerning the membership.

As a benefit of your AAUW membership, you can give recent college graduates a free, one-year AAUW membership within two years of graduation—at no cost to you or them. Please go to this link for more details and to complete the needed forms:
