The University Women’s Club offers activities that enable members to form and maintain friendships, to learn, and to support University of Colorado students.
So far the plans for 2020-2021 are virtual meetings and gatherings, except for a couple of outdoor interest groups.
In NORMAL times, the year begins in September with a Membership Reception, a coffee or tea, during which the year’s activities are described and current and new members indicate their interest in the Club’s activities. As of summer 2020 we have flexible plans for 2021, depending on the pandemic.
Opportunities to learn are provided by five lecture luncheons or dinners at which guest speakers from the University or the community discuss a topic in their area of expertise. Details about the year’s lectures are described under Lectures and Activities.
Interest Groups connect members with others who have similar interests. The UWC has over 20 Interest Groups, including book groups, three different language conversation groups, hiking, biking, music, and reader’s theatre groups. Groups meet at various times and frequencies. For a complete list, see the Interest Group section on this website. New interest groups can be formed by five or more members.
For members interested in opera, arrangements are made for them to attend an opera performed by CU students preceded by an opera brunch. Information on the opera can be found at bottom of the Lectures and Activities section.
University Women’s Club members are dedicated to supporting nontraditional CU students by offering scholarships. Information about the scholarships can be found under Scholarships. The Annual Spring Scholarship Luncheon is a delightful affair in which members meet the latest scholarship winners. It is also a fund-raising event.
The year culminates with an Honors Reception during which the Club honors a woman who has provided exceptional leadership to the Boulder community with the Margaret Willard Award. Accolades are also awarded to outstanding members.
