Dear AU Family and Friends:
Welcome to American University’s holiday video greeting.
This year’s video greeting, “Season of Giving,” reflects AU’s philosophy of giving back—to our city, the country, and the global community.
Students, faculty, staff, and alumni have pledged hours of service for the coming year, and you will see some of their pledges on the snowflakes that decorate our holiday card backdrop. The video greeting also highlights several community organizations led by AU alums, and we are proud of their work to improve the lives of others.
I invite you to view this brief message, to share it with family and friends, and to add your own service pledge on our holiday website. We expect to tally 100,000 hours of community service this coming year, so make sure that your contribution is included.
Best wishes for the holiday season and new year.
