The American Association for Women in Community Colleges is the leading national organization that champions women and maximizes their potential.
Message from the President
Thank you for your interest in the American Association for Women in Community Colleges. AAWCC is the leading national organization for women in community colleges, and has been fostering women’s success since 1973.
Our mission calls us to help women, whether students or employees, maximize their potential. We accomplish this through the work of our chapters, regional conferences, and national professional development opportunities, such as Leaders. Additionally, AAWCC offers Regional scholarships for students in each of our ten regions, and we offer scholarships for women working in community colleges who are pursuing doctoral studies.
This year, AAWCC is focusing on three areas: supporting high quality child care on campuses, promoting women in STEM fields, and promoting the college completion agenda for women. Please note our position statement on college completion.
Through the dedicated work of our membership, our chapters, and our institutions, women’s voices continue to be a vibrant part of our local and national conversations. Thanks to all who support our work and help ensure that the women who study and work in our colleges have opportunities for both access and success.
Maureen Murphy, Ph.D.
