Welcome to the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of South Carolina website.

I hope you’ll find valuable information on this site along with links to other branches and AAUW – all to keep you up to date on doings in AAUW. We welcome your help in advancing the mission of our organization.

AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

With close to 400 members and 10 active branches throughout the state, along with more than 300 Members-At-Large, we are able to further this mission and bring equity to the women and girls in our communities.   AAUW SC has branches in: Aiken, Beaufort, Charleston, Denmark, Due West, Gaffney, Greater Columbia, Greenville, Hilton Head, and Rock Hill.  For more than 130 years AAUW keeps working to promote education, economic security, civil rights, and Title IX issues  for women and girls.

At both the state and local level, we partner with organizations such as the League of Women Voters, the SC School Improvement Council, the SC Women Lawyers Association, the Friends of Education, the Leadership Institute at Columbia College, Womens Rights and Empowerment Network, the SC Progressive Network and other  groups who are working to improve the lives of all our citizens.

I’d love to hear from you – just drop me a line at carol_tempel@bellsouth.net.
