Welcome

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 18 Interest Groups for members to enjoy together, including golfing, the creative arts, literature and book discussions, cooking with friends, tours of area points of interest, daytrips, bridge and couples dinner groups, and an after-five wine and dine group.

Student Aid Fund

Since the inception of the UKWC Student Aid Fund in 1973, we have awarded 217 scholarships, 51 fellowships, and over $650,000 to non-traditional students at the University of Kentucky.

Message From The President

Dear UKWC Members and Friends:

On behalf of the University of Kentucky Woman’s Club, it is my distinct pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to all women! This is OUR club – a club rich with history and traditions of over a century of fun, friendship and philanthropy. And this is YOUR club – one where you can join women of all ages, connecting with others from diverse backgrounds and those with unique interests and talents, as we achieve a common purpose in support of women who are obtaining their degrees from the University of Kentucky. 

All women are invited to join the UK Woman’s Club -- membership is not exclusive to those with ties to the University of Kentucky. Everyone is encouraged to become an active member!Take advantage of some of the fun social groups, support nontraditional UK students by volunteering with committees at our philanthropy events to raise funds for scholarships, and trust that in doing so, you will meet other women, those both like and very different from yourself, with whom you will build lifelong friendships.  

The UK Woman’s Club offers a meaningful array of activities, for members, and opportunities to change lives through our significant scholarship program. Take time this year to enjoy a new Interest Group, take a tour with the Let’s Go group, join a committee or work with other volunteers on a special event. I encourage you to take full advantage of all the University of Kentucky Woman’s Club has to offer, and make the most of your membership!

As a special request, I am asking that each member invite a friend, family member or colleague to join us at an event, an Interest Group meeting, or a luncheon. You can bring others as guests, so they get to know us and our mission, without having to join. If they like our Club, they can then become members. Remember the number one reason why potential members do not join is because no one invited them. Let’s offer a welcoming invitation!

Hoping to see you and your friends at our Welcome Luncheon & Coffee on September 12th at the Signature Club of Lansdowne. It’s a wonderful opportunity to invite someone new to see what our UK Woman’s Club is about and meet other ladies, with no obligation to join that day. It is always a wonderful kickoff to our Club year, and a time for us to reunite with our UKWC friends and catch-up on what everyone has been doing over the summer. Stop by anytime between 11:30a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to enjoy a light lunch or a dessert and coffee. You can join or renew your membership, make reservations for the Fall Luncheon & Fashion Show, join Interest Groups and learn about Committees. 

Serving as your president is truly an honor, and I look forward to working with an amazing and inspiring Board, and our many leadership teams over the coming year, to continue the wonderful traditions that make the UKWC uniquely rewarding for all members.

Again, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the UK Woman’s Club!
