Promoting Women's Professional and Personal Development

University Women’s Network (UWN) is a longstanding organization on the UMass Amherst campus that dedicates itself to promoting the personal and professional development of its members by networking, educating and supporting, and also collaborating with other campus organizations throughout the state, such as Massachusetts Women in Public Higher Education (MWPHE).  

~More than ever the UWN needs your support. Become a member to this long lasting organization here at the University of Massachusetts. Without your support and commitment it would have not been possible to last over 40 years.~

Sarah JarmanWhy join? It’s a great way to expand your network and make new connections. Everyone is very warm and welcoming and makes a concerted effort to be inclusive and embracing of new members. I rarely leave my department so it’s been wonderful to meet people who work in other schools/departments. I’ve also really enjoyed hearing the various speakers. I’m so glad I joined!
