UAB Women's Club
The University of Alabama at Birmingham Women's Club is a 501(c)(3) service organization focusing on charitable and educational programs that connect and support the women of UAB.
From 1957 to 1967 The Women's Club (University of Alabama School of Dentistry) and Faculty Wives Club (Medical College of Alabama) met as two separate organizations. In 1967, as the University of Alabama at Birmingham became a separate and distinct institution, the two groups combined to form the Faculty Women's Club of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The group was originally created to link female faculty and faculty wives seeking an intellectually stimulating, diverse social and service group. Recently membership has been expanded to include more women in the UAB community. On August 27, 2010, the membership voted to change the name of the organization to the University of Alabama at Birmingham Women's Club (UABWC).
