Welcome to the UNL Women's Club website

 KellyPowellPresidentFrom the President..


Welcome to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Women’s Club (UNLWC) website.  We are, as an organization, turning 126 years old!  Originally, our members were UNL faculty wives, but we have evolved over the decades and membership is open to anyone in the community who is interested in the activities, well-being and continuance of the University of Nebraska and the UNLWC. We provide service to the University in several ways including the funding of scholarships.  This year we were able to award $26,000 to 10 students thanks to the generosity and efforts of our membership.  We are also proud of our mask-sewers who provided UNL with 280 masks for students as well as to rural areas in Nebraska where the need was great.  Our fall semester Husker Pantry Day was a huge success as well!  We contributed 60 bags of groceries plus monetary donations, which directly assists students in need.

UNLWC provides social opportunities through special events and strengthens common interests through 16 Interest Groups that provide opportunities for new friendships and experiences.  We have learned how resilient we can be from the challenges of 2020 and how we can stay connected in new ways online.  As you read about our upcoming online events, I hope you will find a way to join in and stay connected to our wonderful community.  If you have not joined one of our online events yet, I encourage you to give it a try.

 If you are interested in learning more about our organization, be sure to check out our various events and Interest Groups on this website.  With all the variety of offerings, we hope you find one or more groups that spark joy for you!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at unlwomensclub@gmail.com.  If you wish to become a member, click on the Membership link and download the form.  I hope to meet you at a future event
