AAUW Honolulu Branch is one of seven branches in the state of Hawaii. It was founded in the 1905 as the College Club. Created to promote “the higher ideals of education among women” it became an official branch of the American Association of University Women in 1922, and although the name was changed, the mission did not. We continue to carry out the high ideals of our predecessors.
Honolulu Branch holds meetings and events at Laulima House, an historic home at 1802 Ke`eaumoku Street in Honolulu For more information about our membership meetings and special events please go to our Events Calendar.
Regular membership is open to women who hold a degree from an accredited college or university, including a two-year associate degree. Our branch also offers a Student Affiliate membership open to students enrolled in a two-or four-year regionally accredited educational institution. If you would like to become a member now, please fill out the application form on the site. We look forward to meeting you and making you a part of our local `ohana!
