The Campaign for SOC is a collaboration.
American University has designed a visionary new home for the School of Communication that integrates the historic elements of the McKinley Building with bold new construction that enhances the school's converged approach to education.
The state-of-the-art facility more than triples SOC's old space in the Mary Graydon Center and has become a point of pride for the AU community. The building offers interaction with Washington's policy and communication leaders, and fosters collaboration among our award-winning academic centers, faculty, students, and alumni.
The new SOC meets rigorous standards of sustainability and advances the university's reputation as a leader in environmental responsibility among North American institutions of higher education. The building is expected to meet the standards for LEED Silver certification.
