Challenge yourself. Inspire others. Create impact.


As a result of the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 and the impact from travel restrictions and need for physical distancing, AAUW’s National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) 2020 that was scheduled to take place May 27-30, 2020, at the University of Maryland, College Park has been postponed. This heartbreaking decision is responsive to the advice of health authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO) who have declared a global pandemic. AAUW’s first priority is the health and welfare of our dedicated staff, NCCWSL participants and the campus community.
