Welcome to the
University of Washington Faculty Auxiliary
Since 1958 the Auxiliary has provided student scholarships. Donations to the VFHS
and the Auxiliary's Scholarship fund make it possible to award a number
of undergraduate scholarships annually.
For nearly 100 years the Faculty Auxiliary has been an active and
contributing participant in life at the University of Washington. The
organization continues to offer a variety of social and cultural
activities to its membership and in
support and service to the greater university community.
The Auxiliary sponsors programs throughout the year, beginning with a
Fall Reception in early October. At this event members renew
acquaintances, welcome newcomers to the university and review
opportunities for participating in Interest Groups. Other
programs include Fall and Spring business meetings, a Scholarship
Awards Dinner, a December Holiday Tea, and a Spring Luncheon.
Families enjoy a traditional Holiday Dinner program in December.
Monthly Dinner-Lectures held at the University of Washington Club
feature speakers, musical entertainment or movies. For more
information contact the Program Chair.
More than 30 Interest Groups are available to members of both the
Auxiliary and the UW Retirement Association. These offer a unique
opportunity to meet and share interests with others associated with the
UW. The groups include a variety of interests, such as Antiques,
Goers, and Book Discussion. For more
about any of these groups please contact the
Interest Group Chair.
