Student-Alumni Programs

The Alumni Association is committed to the development of programs designed to bring students and alumni together. Through meaningful interaction between students and alumni, we can inspire learning and encourage lasting relationships. The Alumni Association hosts a variety of events for students and alumni to interact. Students benefit from the advice and guidance from experienced professionals and alumni remain connected to AU.

The Alumni Board created the Student-Alumni Initiative Committee to serve the role of creating student-alumni events on and off campus.  The following are programs and events that are currently in place to enhance the student-alumni relationship.
