Graduate Women's Athletic Association


 In 1975, the Women's Advisory Board for Athletics was founded to provide an opportunity for alumnae to connect with other athletes and to support the work of current Chicago athletes. In 1985, the name was changed to the Graduate Women's Athletic Association (GWAA) to acknowledge the close link between current students and alumnae.


Our mission is to act as a conduit for the establishment of a network of women helping women. We want to foster engaging and meaningful relationships between female alumni who played varsity sports at the University of Chicago and support current female athletes at the university.


GWAA Co-Chairwomen: Emily Benoit, Eva DeLaurentiis
