History

The Faculty Women's Club (FWC) originated as a political action group. In 1918 there were moves afoot to create a four-year college in Southern California. Women of the faculty of the Los Angeles Normal School came together and formed a Faculty Women's Club in order to help gather support for the proposed four year college particularly among women's groups in the State. In 1919 the Normal School became the Southern Branch of the University of California. Once the political objective was achieved the FWC met to consider the club's future. The club determined to continue and by the spring of 1920 the first constitution and purpose of the FWC of the Southern Branch of the University of California had been drafted. The first purpose did not include specific mention of scholarships and yet the treasurer's report for 1920-1921 includes the entry: $30.00 for Student Loan Fund. This fund, the first such fund at UCLA, was the modest beginning for the club's present scholarship program. The club has continued, without interruption, and tried to fulfill the founders' hope that it would "create a broader view and deeper interest in the civic, political and social life in our community."
