What are Study Groups?

Study groups provide an opportunity for members to grow intellectually and creatively, broaden their involvement in topics of interest, become agents for intelligent community action and meet people who share similar interests. Please note: anyone is always welcome to attend any of these groups – no strings attached! Drop in, & bring a friend, to experience fellowship and the pleasures of lifelong learning.

AAUW In Action (AIA) …

AAUW in Action is a study group that serves as a spring- board for community service activities for our branch that promote AAUW’s mission.

If you are interested in joining us for a meeting, or just knowing what we’re planning, please ask to be on our email list by sending an email to Erica at

Next meeting: e-mail meeting on Tuesday, April 13, 2021.

Thank you to all who attended the Virtual International Women’s Day event on March 8th. We had 110 participants, several from different areas of the US. The 4 speakers were from Uruguay, Kenya, Switzerland and India. If you did attend, you’ll be receiving a 2 question survey email from UWL; we appreciate the feedback we get from it so please take a minute and fill it out. While we were really pleased with the turn- out and how the program flowed, we hope that next year we’ll be back in person.

A new project we’re looking at is to record places in our area that “Women made history” for the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Saving Places initiative. We’re starting by identifying physical locations in La Crosse, Monroe, Vernon, Trempealeau and Jackson counties that were places where women impacted history. Eventually, we plan to write the stories and submit those with pictures to the National Trust’s website. If you know of any places, please let one of our members know. If you’d like to be involved with the project, you are welcome!
