Congratulations on joining the American University community and welcome to Washington, D.C.
I hope you will enjoy this brief video message welcoming you to campus and showcasing some of the things that make AU special.
During your time here, you will learn about the distinctive AU “spirit”—which emphasizes academics, activism, and global awareness. As an AU student, you will find numerous opportunities and many resources for learning, both in the classroom and in the community at-large. I encourage you to get involved.
AU's strategic plan, Leadership for a Changing World, outlines goals and objectives for the next decade at American University. Visit american.edu/strategicplan for more information. (myAU.american.edu login required for some documents)
The 2011 Campus Plan is a "roadmap" that details proposals and objectives to enhance and build upon our campus facilities for the next decade. An overarching theme is to bring more undergraduate students back to live on campus.
