The History Club was established in 2004 to offer students the opportunity to engage History Department faculty in meaningful discussion about a variety of important topics. For instance, students gain valuable insight as to how to write articles for publication and how to build a strong CV. The Club also informs students about upcoming scholarships and conferences, in addition to helping students strengthen their applications for graduate school. The History Club also allows students the chance to network with other students and faculty.
The History Club holds an annual fall Flag Football Fundraiser (Faculty/Staff vs. Students) with an accompanying raffle/silent auction. Funds are donated to organizations such as United Way, Madison-area charity Access to Independence, Second Harvest Food Bank, Edgewood’s history Human Issues course Freedom Rides.
The Club meets on a monthly basis, and is open to all History majors/minors at Edgewood. The History Club has an elected President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer who serve 1-year terms and are elected by members of the History Club and the faculty advisor. Individuals cannot be elected to the same position more than once. The responsibilities of the President include planning and chairing the monthly meetings, as well as updating the Department newsletter every semester with the help of the Vice-President. If the President is unable to perform their duties, the Vice-President will assume leadership of the club. The Treasurer monitors the collection and distribution of the History Club's finances. The primary responsibility of the Secretary is to take minutes at the monthly meetings, and disseminate the minutes via email to members of the History Club.
