President's Welcome!


This time of year with all the upcoming holiday celebrations can be a bit lonely for some.  Are you one of those who would like a little more spice in your life?

If so it’s never too late to join the UK Woman’s Club!  As a member you will quickly find new friends and so many activities to enjoy not just during the holidays but year round too!  Take a look at our event calendar, explore the Interest Groups and set yourself up for an entertaining and happy time now and in the New Year to come. 

I hope to welcome you to Fun, Friendship and Philanthropy in the near future! 

Cordially Diana Rast

President of UKWC


The University of Kentucky Woman's Club (UKWC) welcomes all women – faculty, staff, alumni, their wives, friends and families. We come together in service to UK students, while sharing common interests and engaging in fun social activities.

Our activities include four luncheons each year that offer presentations about timely and relevant topics. We have over 15 Interest Groups for members to enjoy together, including the creative arts, literature and book discussions, bridge, area tours, restaurants and entertainment. Our family play group welcomes moms and tots.

Since the inception of the UKWC Student Aid Fund in 1973, we have awarded 193 undergraduate scholarships and 40 graduate fellowships to non-traditional students at the University of Kentucky. These scholarships and fellowships total over half a million dollars.
