AAUW’s Mission AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Through its public policy program, all AAUW members inform themselves and influence national and local educational policies.
AAUW-KENTUCKY participated in Women’s Equality Day at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville on Saturday, August 25 with University of Louisville President Dr. Neeli Bendaputi as the keynote speaker.
Kentucky AAUW and branches, with Morehead State University (MSU), are sponsors of the Eighth SpaceTrek Camp at MSU campus: July 12-20 2019. SpaceTrek camp had 23 graduates in 2018. Morehead State University is 1 out of 5 Universities in the nation that offers a BS degree in Space Science. Graduates in Space Science are always in demand and have no issues with unemployment. The Louisville AAUW Member Fundraiser was online for the second time in the summer of 2018. All donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by United States tax laws. There were additional sponsors from Louisville and also from other areas in Kentucky.
In 2019, SpaceTrek will be increased to 9 days and the admission fee for one is $800. Faye Dykstra has several 10% off coupons she can distribute upon request. PLEASE CONTACT HER for a coupon at (502) 718-6710 (call or text).
