STEP (Summer Transition Enrichment Program) is an invite only program at American University that provides incoming freshman with the tools and resources they need for a head start as an Eagle. The primary goal of STEP is to help students succeed in the classroom. This intensive seven-week residential program is built to support the transition to college. It provides students with an academic and social edge, while familiarizing them with Washington D.C. and AU' s campus resources. The program's primary focus is academic success, however we also encourage students to form lasting friendships through regular social and extracurricular activities. STEP 2017 will be held Sunday, June 25-Friday, August 18, 2017

Have questions about STEP? Stop by the Center for Diversity & Inclusion
in Mary Graydon Center Room 201/202 to meet our staff and get to know Shannon, CDI's Assistant Director of Student Success and Transition.
Our goal at CDI is support students in the STEP program and unify the various resources—both programs and people— available to help students succeed once they are on campus. The key is making sure those resources are connected with each other to support students holistically. When we see students struggling academically or if they are challenged with finding an internship or summer opportunity, or looking for ways to engage on campus, we are able to connect the dots and address students’ needs.

For over twenty years, STEP has built a sterling record of student success. STEP has taken many forms over the years but has a consistent record of attracting students who earn national merit awards including the BOREN Scholarship, White House Internships, Hispanic Congressional Caucus Fellowship, Rangel Summer Internships, and many other AU awards and honors.
STEP participants also complete their education at very high rates. The program lasts for seven weeks during the summer, however our commitment to STEP students lasts for their entire career at American University.
If you have any questions regarding any of this information, please contact the Center for Diversity & Inclusion at 202-885-3651 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to welcoming you to campus and getting to know you this summer. Congratulations once again on your admission to American University!
