The National Association of University Women is a public service organization that strives to confront the problems of all Americans. Many programs addressing education, health, international development, and strengthening of the African American family have emerged and evolved over the years.   Today, programs remain the heart of NAUW and our new Five-Point Program is designed to improve the lives of others with innovative and high-impact programs. All branches will creatively implement programs that will effectively serve their respective communities.  The Five-Point Program is under the theme: “A Legacy of Service and Commitment in Action” and focuses on:

  • Educational Development
  • Health Promotion
  • Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Support
  • Political Awareness and Involvement
  • International Awareness
