UWC Membership

| Membership

Fellowship is the most important aspect of the University Women’s Club (UWC) and the impetus behind the formation of our organization.  As we prepare to celebrate our 125th anniversary, it remains our guiding principle. 

The UWC has a rich tradition of participation by our members. Past Presidents, long-term, and new members contribute to successful programming and excellent administration. Those who faithfully attend our luncheon meetings and participate in our many Interest Groups provide cultural and intellectual excitement and growth. And most particularly, those who work in leadership roles and chair and develop our lectures, service opportunities and social activities are the core of our organization. Many members have been granted the Meritorious Service Award for going above and beyond in their contributions.

Membership Includes

Luncheons

Our Luncheon meetings are held at the Ohio State University Faculty Club, providing an important connection with the university community. Along with good food and engaging table conversation, the luncheon offers the opportunity to hear guest speakers providing intellectual insight to important social, historical, artistic, or political issues.

Interest Groups

Members of UWC have the opportunity to participate in any of twenty-six interest groups. Focus ranges from antiques to wine tasting, and also include art, creative writing, bridge games, crafts, gardening, movies, drama, genealogy and many more.

Friendships

The University Women’s Club welcomes all women in the Greater Columbus Community who seek friends and fellowship. Life-long bonds based upon social, intellectual, volunteer, and community service opportunities are our greatest gift to our membership. Join us and find friendship amid purpose.

Service Opportunities

The University Women’s Club seeks to respond to the needs and concerns of the university community. Our most important contribution currently is our scholarship program which supports nearly 30 scholarships for OSU students annually. The scholarship fund grows through private donations, gifts and bequests from our membership, and through the profits from Buckeye Bargains. Furthermore, we strive to address any problems or issues that befall the university community through service and support appropriate to our mission.

Our President-Elect watches for reports of member deaths, but it is almost impossible for anyone to know everyone in the Club. Therefore, if you happen to see an obituary in the paper or know of someone’s passing, please contact us. We will add their name to the In Memoriam section of our newsletter.
