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 also provide social opportunities through special events and strengthen common interests through 16 Interest Groups that provide opportunities for new friendships and experiences.

 This Fall marks 20 years of living in Lincoln for my family.  I believe my first UNLWC experience was when my husband and I shared about our year in Namibia with the International Club Interest Group.  Things snowballed from that initial meeting.  I became involved with International Club and eventually joined the Board as Secretary and then worked on Programs.  I remember thinking during those first years in the club that I would never want to be President but here we are, years later, and may I just say “never say never!”  I have made so many wonderful friends and learned so much about the city of Lincoln and the state of Nebraska through this organization.  I’m so excited to extend a warm welcome to anyone considering joining the UNLWC.

 If you are interested in learning more about our organization, be sure to check out our various events and Interest Groups.  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 on the Membership page and download the form.  I hope to meet you at a future event!
