Welcome to AAUW Harrisburg!


In light of the seriousness of the COVID-19 emergency, it is important to keep our organizations strong and ready for the future when the crisis ends. To keep all of everyone safe and comply with current social distancing requirements, all April and May events and programs have been canceled. NOTE – The deadline for submission of scholarship applications is extended to July 15.

The Program Committee has developed an interesting and informative schedule for Fall 2020 – Spring 2021.   We are taking steps to bring these events to you electronically if it becomes necessary. Updates will be posted here and on our Facebook page.

“Keep Calm and Carry On” was a motivational slogan developed by the British government in 1939 in preparation for World War II.  It certainly seems appropriate now for all of us.  Stay calm, stay home, and stay safe!

Welcome to the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Harrisburg (PA) branch. The Harrisburg branch is part of the 100,000-member AAUW national organization. AAUW is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls.

We invite you to learn about us. As you navigate this website, you will see information about who we are, membership information, our activities, education and training, community service projects, and scholarship opportunities. We welcome you to join us as we work to enhance the status of women and girls locally and nationally.

Also featured is information about the branch history, programs and events, special interest groups, fundraising projects, advocacy, and leadership training offered through the AAUW national organization.

The Harrisburg branch will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2021. Plans are being made to honor our rich history of accomplishments and contributions to the Tri-County area of Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry counties. Watch for more details!
