Locally Engaged

Since the 1930s, the Medford, Oregon branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has served our community, advancing advocacy, education and equity for women. Our Branch, together with other community organizations, has helped to establish and further some of the most esteemed institutions and cultural events in Jackson County. We offer fellowship, networking, leadership training and lifelong friends. Our members enjoy opportunities to meet and have fun with others of like interests from antiques to books to international cuisine and much more through our interest groups. From working to improve the lives of thousands to helping one homeless teen, this is what we do.
