American Association of University Women, Elmira-Corning Branch- The Elmira-Corning branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) was founded March 4, 1916 as the College Women's Club of Elmira.  The organization was open to women with a Bachelor's Degree or higher.  The goal was to help female graduates continue their educations through lectures and discussions.  Over the years, the goals of the club have expanded to include scholarships and legal and political advocacy for women.  In March 1917, the club merged with the Association of College Alumnae.  The name changed again in 1921 to the American Association of University Women.  Around 2000, the Elmira branch was extended to cover Corning and the entrance requirements were expanded to include women with Associate's Degrees as well.
