Interest Groups


Faculty Women’s Club has its own special interest groups.  These groups are definitely not political in nature, (although that could be a topic of conversation); however, they ARE filled with diverse, engaging, talented, and fun-loving women, all of whom are FWC members.  For those of us who are long-time members of Faculty Women’s Club, the various Interest Groups are the “heart” of this organization. The definition of interest says it all: to attract, draw your attention, appeal, fascinate or catch your eye. Our Interest Groups do all of this and more. They provide a chance to meet and really get to know women with connections throughout our ever-expanding medical center campus. Talking, laughing, working, eating and sometimes even crying together help provide a great bonding and support network.  Great friendships and wonderful support goes hand-in-hand with the events planned and experienced by each of the groups through the year.  Do look them over and take the leap and join the fun.  You’ll be glad you did.  The meeting times and group chairs/co-chairs are listed below. If you have any questions, please email or call that group’s chair or Mary Beth Gust, Interest Group Chair, 402-490-9146 or  We will be happy to give you more information.  If you have any interest in forming a new group (couples bridge perhaps?) please feel free to contact Mary Beth Gust or any of the leaders listed below.
