Becoming a Member
New members are welcome to join at any time and participate in club-wide events and interest sections. There are special newcomer activities that provide opportunities for members who have joined within the past two years to become better acquainted.
FWC dues are $30 for the academic year (September through August). Dues cover expenses that benefit our members, such as printing a directory, newsletter mailings, and three social functions for all members.
You may join Faculty Women’s Club and become a member in either of two categories. Regular Members are women faculty and the female spouses or partners of faculty at the University of Michigan. “Faculty” is defined to include professors of all ranks; visiting professors; lecturers; postdoctoral fellows; research area specialists; directors of various units; curators; and persons with similar duties. (Retirees in these categories are also eligible.) FWC also welcomes as Friend Members women who are friends of a Regular member and attend an interest section with the Regular member.
To join FWC, download and complete the FWC Membership Card (PDF). Send it with a check made out to Faculty Women’s Club to the address listed on the form. Questions? Email FWC.firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer.
Current members are warmly invited to try new FWC activities and interest sections. Find out more about FWC current offerings by attending the Fall Welcome Reception, held every September at the Michigan League. All current members receive printed copies of the FWC Directory every August, that are solely for the personal use of members, and are emailed FWC newsletters in the fall and spring.
FWC recently established two donation opportunities, the FWC Endowed Scholarship Fund and the FWC Special Projects Fund. To renew membership, pay dues, donate funds, or update membership information, use the FWC Membership Card (PDF). Dues are $30, payable by October 1 for the academic year. Donations are accepted at any time.
Members in good standing with the Club for at least 50 years are honorary members and receive a special designation: Golden Member. We appreciate their years of membership, loyalty and enthusiasm and honor them at our Fall Reception and Spring Luncheon each year. There are over 65 Golden members now! Golden members are exempt from paying dues.
The FWC Facebook page is for members only. If you are a current member you can use this link to the Faculty Women’s Club of the University of Michigan Facebook Page and ask to join. You’ll see more Club photos, newsletters and activity updates.
