The School of Public Affairs' tradition of academic excellence is made possible through the generous support of alumni and friends. Your generosity contributes the funds necessary to bridge the gap between revenues and the true cost of running a world class university.
SPA sponsors many events each year and is involved with the university-wide activities as well. Check out the current calendar of events for the upcoming months. Other ways which alumni can become involved include:
- Coordinating special events (i.e., happy hour, BBQ, etc.)
- Talking with a prospective student about attending American University
- Assisting in planning or hosting an alumni or student event in your city
- Serving as a mentor to current students or other alumni
- Participating as a donor to a SPA project or program
