Welcome to PWA

The Professional Women's Association was founded in January 1993.
The UCSB Professional Women’s Association promotes the advancement of women at UCSB and serves as a voice for women in the discussion of campus issues. 
The purpose of this Association is to develop awareness among faculty, and other campus constituencies of the contributions of women to the mission of UCSB; to provide activities and support to other campus constituencies that contribute to the advancement of women; to serve as a networking and communications channel among women, and to provide a forum to influence decisions on campus and community issues.


The Goals of PWA are to:

Celebrate the contributions made by women on campus;
Educate and create leadership opportunities for members;
Give back to our community with service;
Mentor and advocate for all.


Join us in our journey, celebrating our 24 years of success in serving our community!
