The Faculty Women’s Club is open to all women affiliated with the University of British Columbia- faculty, faculty spouses/partners, post docs, family of members, administration – we welcome all. Come check us out! The FWC has been part of the University community since 1917.
Our vibrant club provides service to UBC through hosting events for new, current and retiring faculty, supporting the student food bank and participating in UBC special events. Our many interest groups provide something for everyone from French Conversation, Art Appreciation, Let’s Eat Out, Bible Study and Heritage Trips to Hiking, Snowshoeing and Walking. Through the generous support of our members we provide scholarships and bursaries to undergraduate and graduate students. Our monthly meetings include a social time followed by engaging speakers and lively, intelligent discussions. It is truly a club that provides service, support and fellowship.
