Welcome to the Downers Grove Area (IL) Branch of AAUW!

AAUW (American Association of University Women): www.aauw.org is a national organization of 100,000 women and men in more than 1000 branches across the country. AAUW promotes equity for all women and girls, lifelong education, and positive societal changes.

We support the National AAUW mission:
AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

The Downers Grove Area Branch was founded in 1949 and has approximately 100 members from Darien, Downers Grove, Lisle, Westmont, and Woodridge. As a branch, we study global issues, promote women’s education, and meet for social events.
