Be part of the UWCV legacy
WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY WOMEN’S CLUB OF VANCOUVER
With a rich history of advocacy, events and representation, the University Women’s Club of Vancouver now boasts more than 450+ members from more than 100 universities.
Our purpose is to stimulate intellectual activity, to promote an interest in public affairs and to afford an opportunity for the expression of an united opinion on women’s issues. We avidly promote an interest in educational issues, the maintenance of high standards of public education and awarding multiple bursaries and scholarships annually. Fellowship and co-operation among women is of utmost importance at the University Women’s Club of Vancouver, and members together we are committed to and responsible for the preservation of Hycroft, a City of Vancouver designated heritage building.
Providing scholarships, advocating for women, offering intellectual stimulation and celebrating arts and culture has ensured the loyalty and relevance of the UWCV for women for over 100 years.Cleta BrownUWCV Past President
Hycroft, in the heart of Shaughnessy, is our members’ home away from home. We preserve our heritage house with its original interior, terrace, and beautiful walled garden - a welcoming place to enjoy, to meet, and to entertain family and friends.Dianne DixonChair, House Committee
