Our Programs

The St. Paul Branch of AAUW, is one of over 1000 branches nationwide, representing more than 100,000 members who seek personal lifelong development and advocate social change and public policy consistent with gender equity.

Like all AAUW branches, St. Paul AAUW is interested in educational equality and opportunity for women, as well as a wide variety of other social and cultural issues, and this interest is reflected in its programs and events. Unlike many other branches, St. Paul has its own clubhouse, known for many years as the St. Paul College Club. Meetings and events are held at this wonderful 100 year old Summit Avenue mansion, which is located next door to the Minnesota Governor’s Mansion.

From September to early May, the St. Paul Branch meets every Tuesday with programs at 10:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lunch is served at noon. Throughout the year, in accordance with our mission statement, speakers are presented by program committees: Public Policy, Amazing Women, International Relations, Diversity, Environment, Cultural Interest, Education and Learning, and Community Projects. There is valet parking for regular meetings. During fall and spring, periodic Thursday Evening Programs are held beginning at 5:30 Social Time, 6:00 Dinner, 7:00 Program.

In addition, there are groups meeting for discussions of books and special interests. Docent-led tours at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts are arranged many months and we also tour The Museum of Russian Art’s special exhibitions.

Throughout the year, projects directed by a Fund Raising Committee raise funds for scholarships for St. Paul high school seniors to attend and continue in college and for the AAUW Educational Opportunities and AAUW Legal Advocacy Funds. To provide for daily maintenance and upkeep of our clubhouse, St. Paul Branch operates a facility rental and catering business focused on weddings known as The St. Paul College Club. The College Club business revenue also provides money for scholarships and our women’s advocacy interests.
