Greetings from the College of Arts and Sciences and American University.
Since joining the College community little over a year ago, I have been struck time and again by the passion and dedication of our students, faculty and alumni. Our faculty’s profound, unfailing commitment to scholarship and teaching is reflected not only in today’s students, but also in the leaders and innovators we are proud to call our alumni!
As we strive to advance the College’s mission as the essential core of undergraduate and graduate education at American University, we need your guidance, participation and support. There are many ways for you to get involved with fellow AU alums in your area, to reconnect with AU faculty, and to help support current students and programs. I hope you will explore this site to learn more about what’s happening in the College and to find new ways to get engaged with AU!
In the meantime, thanks for all that you do in support of the College and American University!
