Welcome to the UNL Women's Club website

Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Women’s Club (UNLWC) website. UNLWC, formerly known as the University of Nebraska Faculty Women’s Club, is an organization celebrating 125 years this year, a testament to the commitment of women who have dedicated their time, talent, and treasure in fellowship and service to the University.

Over time, UNLWC evolved from being called UNL faculty Women’s Club, where its members were UNL faculty wives, to opening up membership to women of the community who have a connection to the University, whether directly or indirectly  through its activities. Our main goal is to raise scholarship funds for students with financial need. Through educational and social events as well as interests groups, the Women’s Club creates opportunities for new experiences and fellowship among its members.

In the spring of 2016, my husband was offered a position with the University and, after a quick visit to Lincoln, made the decision to make the mid-West our next adventure.  In the late Fall of 2016, I was warmly welcomed by members of the UNLWC who took me under their wing as a newbie of the University system and quickly became involved.  And now I’m your president!

This year the UNLWC has a dynamic and energetic group of women who, alongside me, have accepted the responsibility of leadership. I know you will support and encourage them as they endeavor to plan activities to foster friendships, explore the heritage of Nebraska, serve the students of UNL, learn new skills and build memories together.

Our Fall Welcome Back event will be held on September 18, 2019 at the Hilton Garden Inn Haymarket Downtown.  The registration form will be coming in the mail late August. Please watch for it! In the meantime, please browse our interest groups and events and see if any of them fit your interest!

 I’m honored to serve as the 2019-2020 President, and I look forward to a rewarding and enjoyable year together.
