Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 29! 

You’re invited to volunteer with your local AU Alumni Community on Saturday, April 29, as part of the AU Alumni Association's inaugural Eagles in Action: A Coordinated Day of Community Service.

Service day allows alumni, students, staff, faculty, parents and friends of AU, to foster the desire to lead for the greater good in their communities. By bringing together diverse members of AU’s community with a common goal of service, Eagles in Action will strengthen the bonds with each other and the University, as well as increase AU’s visibility around the world.

Don't see a service day project near you? Check back soon - new projects are being added every week!
