Welcome to the UNL Women's Club website

Mae From the President...

Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Women’s Club website.  We are an organization that has served the University for more than 120 years.  Originally, we were comprised of UNL faculty wives, but recently we have opened our doors to any woman who supports the mission and vision of UNL and our club.  We exist to foster friendship among our members and to raise scholarship funds for students.  Last year we donated over $20,000 to a dozen students and we hope to continue that level and even go beyond that with your generous support!

 When I arrived in Lincoln ten years ago, the UNL Women’s Club was my conduit to getting acquainted with the university community, as well as becoming acquainted with the heart of Lincoln, NE.  What a blessing to be in Nebraska, where the people live well, work hard and give generously of their time and talent to those around them.  Whether it’s volunteering in non-profits around the area or helping students through the Huskers Helping Huskers Pantry, this community goes above and beyond!

We would love to help you connect with the UNL Women’s Club and hope you will see the value of connecting and building friendships with other women here in Lincoln.  Please take a few minutes to browse our interest groups and events and see if any of them fit your interests!  We would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have.  If you’re interested in membership, click the Membership link and download the form.  I look forward to meeting you at one of this year’s events.

 I am honored to serve as the 2018-2019 President, and I look forward to a rewarding and enjoyable year together!
