Welcome to the Office of Campus Life

Welcome to the Office of the Vice President of Campus Life! Campus Life is made up of 13 departments dedicated to supporting students in areas ranging from spiritual life to academic support. We strive to create a campus that fosters student learning, development, and success.

Whether we’re collaborating with student leaders on service opportunities, hosting concerts and guest speakers, or welcoming each incoming class to campus, our work is focused on student engagement.

Students play an important role in shaping life at AU. Stop by and see us on the 4th floor of the Butler Pavilion, or explore our departments online to see how we can help improve your time at AU.
