Letter from the President:
Welcome to the University of Michigan’s Faculty Women’s Club, as we enter our 96th year, on our way to celebrating our Centennial Anniversary in 2021.
FWC, drawing its membership from women faculty, spouses/partners of faculty, and a wider community of friends, promotes friendship and fellowship among its members through participation in the more than 40 available interest sections, as well as shared experiences through club-wide events. Opportunities abound for members to pursue their interests in books, antiques, gardening, music, food, language, bridge, art, drama, quilting, and much more, while sharing their knowledge and talent with fellow attendees at monthly or weekly meetings. Our club-wide events encourage participation across the membership at our Fall and Holiday Receptions, Winter Social Event, and Spring Luncheon and Annual Business Meeting, as well as the Spring Bus Tour, Newcomers TGIF and Winter Coffee get-togethers, and the monthly Drop-in Coffee at Zingerman’s Next Door.
As UM continues its Bicentennial celebration this year, we look forward to planning our Centennial celebration just a few years down the road; our 95th Anniversary “Quartet” sculpture by Jens Zorn, located at the northeast corner of the Michigan League, will inspire and encourage us in the next phase. Come join us for the enjoyment, enrichment, and journey into the future.
I am honored to be your President for this year, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!
Kari Michalowski, FWC President, 2017-18
