College/University partners are institutional members of the Association. Each campus may name a faculty or staff member as its representative to the “broader” AAUW efforts. The representatives are encouraged to tap the branch resources when that makes sense, and the branches may contact the representatives with information about projects such as the Youth Advocacy ToolKit.
Mary Peterson and Sheila Bassoppo-Moyo introduced the Young Advocates Toolkit project to the attendees at the AAUW NC 2007 summer meeting. This project is funded in part by an AAUW public policy impact grant and is a collaboration with NC Action for Children. All branches are encouaged to use the project to make connections to at least one local campus with this project whose goal is empowerment of the students.
