UAlbany Women’s Association Seeking
(September 10, 2004)
Established in 1951 by Virginia Collins as
the Faculty Wives’ Club, the University at Albany
Women’s Association continues to offer an opportunity
for social activities with other women of the
University community. All women who work at
the University at Albany and the wives of UAlbany
male faculty and staff are eligible to belong.
Since it is not feasible to identify new female
employees or spouses through the University’s
personnel records, the UAWA extends an invitation
for new members via this article.
The organization has always provided social
and fund-raising efforts. In recent years, the
group has awarded at least one scholarship per
year to a University female student and, in
2000, established an endowment to ensure that
this tradition continues.
The UAWA has three interest groups: a book
club which meets monthly on a Wednesday afternoon,
a bridge club which meets monthly on a Wednesday
evening, and a gourmet dinner group which plans
three cooperative meals each year.
In addition, UAWA schedules an annual September
picnic to start the new school year, and both
autumn and spring luncheon events. On October
2, members will take a tour on the Albany Aqua
Duck and will have lunch at Jack’s Oyster House.
To maintain its mailing list and to cover some
event costs, UAWA dues are $10 per year.
