About Women for Abilene Christian University
In 1969, 30 women founded WACU as an opportunity for women graduates, faculty, staff and others with a love for Abilene Christian to advance the university. The Board of Trustees gave WACU the Jennings House on the corner of E.N. 16th and Campus Court to serve as the organization's headquarters.
Members live all over the world; those from Abilene help the university by serving at events; supporting students, faculty and staff; and maintaining the ACU Museum. At-large members provide valuable support through paying dues and hosting fundraising events, helping fund both the WACU organization and the WACU Endowed Scholarship, as well as annual projects WACU helps support; at-large members also provide valuable recruiting support for prospective ACU students.
The organization is led by an executive committee elected each fall and assisted by a liaison from the ACU Alumni Relations Office. This group provides leadership and direction for WACU and helps it meet its objective of supporting ACU's mission to "educate students for Christian service and leadership around the world."
