The San José State University Faculty Wives Club organized in the late 1940s as a means of fostering friendship among the wives of SJSU faculty members. The Faculty Wives Club began by hosting monthly events and activities for its members, such as fashion shows, cooking, and handcrafting. In addition, club members also participated in fundraising efforts for student scholarships. Today, the Faculty Wives Club continues to award three student scholarships of $2,000 each annually.
