Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) archives
The Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) was established in 1971 to provide governance and leadership in the assurance of standards of excellence and educational soundness in women's intercollegiate athletics. The AIAW replaced the Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics for Women which had been founded in 1967 by what is today the National Association for Girls and Women in Sports, of which the AIAW was a sub-unit. The AIAW, having lost significant funding and membership to the NCAA, ceased to operate in 1983. The championship files for the various sports sponsored by the AIAW have been fully processed. The remaining, unprocessed materials include membership lists, eligibility records, procedures manuals, proceedings, programs, publications, handbooks, and such administrative records as minutes, reports, correspondence, and conference files; a preliminary inventory is available for these materials.
