Decade of Transformation

In May 2017, Neil Kerwin will step down after more than a decade as president of American University. Under his leadership, the university has undergone a remarkable transformation thanks to the dedication of the entire AU community.

The university is now measurably stronger in terms of academic quality, financial position, facilities, and stature, and we are poised for continued success. Join us as we celebrate the extraordinary milestones we have achieved and imagine all that is to come.
