A university campus reflects the seamless integration of space and ideas, and the environment we create is one that ultimately shapes imagination, stimulates dialogue, and builds community. The demand for learning on modern, well-equipped campuses has never been greater. Support from the AU community will result in several new, inspiring structures and revitalize those in need.
