Our members live all over Santa Cruz County, from Boulder Creek to Watsonville. AAUW was founded in 1881 and is open to all graduates who hold an associate, baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university. The Santa Cruz County Branch was founded in 2014 when Watsonville Branch (founded in 1941) joined Santa Cruz Branch (founded in 1935).
Membership in the Santa Cruz County Branch includes affiliation with our state (aauw-ca.org) and national (aauw.org) organizations. You are invited to attend any of our meetings as a guest. Our members are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the Branch and how you can join. Please go to our “Branch Officers” page to obtain contact information and the “Events” page for the time and location of our next meeting or event.
