To maintain and build upon AU's reputation as a top university, we must continue to attract the best and brightest faculty and students. While campus improvements are vital to creating an atmosphere conducive to intellectual growth, the teachers, scholars, and students who make up the university community reflect our true strength.

Sustaining academic excellence in a changing world requires that we continually explore new ways to enrich the educational experiences of our students. Academic enhancements – current use gifts to scholarships, research, and programs - allow AU's faculty and students to pursue ideas that challenge themselves and others.
