A Sense of Place ... A Spirit of Belonging
The University Women’s Club was founded in 1909.
At that time, club members were engaged in the struggle to gain the vote and to improve wages and working conditions for women.
Those values continue as members support the advancement of education, the arts, and social and civic reform.
Through our Scholarship Trust Fund, the University Women’s Club annually awards more than 25 scholarships and bursaries to students at local universities, colleges and arts groups.
The University Women’s Club is affiliated with the Canadian Federation of University Women and the International Federation of University Women.
The Club has made its home in the beautiful Ralph Connor House since 1939. It is a National Historic Site, a Manitoba Historic Site and a City of Winnipeg Heritage House.
Contact the Membership Committee (form below) for more information and to make plans to attend Bar 54 to meet current Members and see what the Club is all about!
