Founded in 1909, the University of Kentucky Woman's Club, UKWC, has a dual purpose: social activities for its members and service to the University. Originally established as a faculty wives' club dedicated to the well-being of students, over the last century we have expanded to welcome all women from all walks of life who enjoy fun, friendship and philanthropy, our motto.
Our membership includes women with a broad range of interests and experiences who come together to create a network of support through friendships, fun and volunteer service. We are a circle of dynamic women united in providing good will and service to students, while building strong bonds of friendship with each other.
Activities include four luncheons per academic year featuring speakers from various community organizations with a broad focus on timely topics pertinent to all women. Currently we have multiple Interest Groups that provide members with opportunities to engage in stimulating social, educational, artistic and literary activities, outings and events. Each year, we host a variety of Club Socials and special events for our members to attend campus activities. We also host community events, including group outings to Lexington’s Gallery Hop events, receptions, and local tours. We encourage our UKWC members to bring their friends and families to these Club Socials and special events. We encourage and welcome ALL women to become members of the University of Kentucky Woman's Club.
