AU in the Neighborhood

Maintaining good relations with our neighbors is a priority for AU and we welcome the opportunity to be a valuable and valued community partner.

We invite our neighbors to attend lectures on campus, enjoy musical performances and openings at the Katzen Arts Center, show their support as Friends of the Library, take advantage of special rates at the university fitness center and pool, and make use of campus amenities such as our bookstore, retail food outlets, and ATM machines. We have much to enjoy together and hope to see you at AU soon.

American University's 2011 Campus Plan is a "roadmap" that details proposals and objectives to enhance and build upon our campus facilities for the next decade.

Community Liaison Committee

Community Liaison Committee (CLC)

The CLC website contains materials from past meetings and the dates of upcoming meetings.

The American University Community Liaison Committee (CLC) was established to foster positive relations and to maintain regular communication between the university and its neighbors. As specified in the D.C. Zoning Commission Order for AU’s 2011 Campus Plan, the CLC comprises individuals from neighboring community organizations and representatives from the university. The CLC meets at least quarterly. One of the four meetings is a town hall meeting with the president of the university.
