Mission Statement

A catalyst, as defined by scientists, is a substance that accelerates chemical reactions. Bringing substances together is a fundamental component of a catalyst’s mechanism of action. Similarly, Catalyst magazine is one place where the American University sciences come together to relay exciting developments, promote discourse, and provide inspiration for current and prospective students, faculty, and alumni.
