The AU Neighborhood Partnership

The AU Neighborhood Partnership (“The Partnership”) is a joint forum between American University and leaders in the communities immediately adjacent to the University’s campus. Established in 2018, the Partnership is designed to improve university/neighborhood relations through facilitated discussion, information sharing, and consensus-based decision making.

Through the Partnership, the university sustains ongoing engagement efforts with neighborhood leaders related to long-term university planning and neighborhood quality of life initiatives. The Partnership works to improve interactions and develop a cooperative and beneficial dialogue and shared analysis between the university and the community to provide recommendations that improve university and community relationships regarding such areas as enrollment, student housing, student conduct, facilities planning, parking, and transportation.
