AAUW Las Cruces, established in 1923, is the oldest and largest branch in New Mexico with 125 members. We have been moving women forward for the past 96 years!!
The American Association of University Women has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For more than 130 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.
February Membership meeting
Our meeting on February 8 will follow the usual schedule of socializing at 9:30 am with the program and meeting following at 10:00 am. We will hear from Tracey Bryan, President, and CEO of The Bridge of Southern New Mexico. For more than 30 years, Tracey has been a leader in ground-breaking and industry-leading initiatives. She returned to Las Cruces several years ago from Washington, DC where she was VP of Widmeyer Communications which supported the work of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
The Bridge of Southern New Mexico was incubated in the education committee of the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce. It is building bridges inside and outside of Dona Ana County that connect educational services for students with building a stronger future workforce.
The Bridge has emerged as one of New Mexico’s most successful collective impact initiatives, igniting the state’s Early College High School movement and cultivating a community focus on increasing high school graduation rates which now outpace the state at 80%.
