Multicultural Alumni Reunion

Thanks to all who joined the AU Alumni Association, in partnership with the AU Black Alumni Alliance and AU Latino Alumni Alliance, as we increased our multicultural footprint through a new and exciting engagement...the Multicultural Alumni Reunion at All-American Weekend!

Alumni spanning six decades came together to celebrate our unique experiences, build new friendships across generations, tour the campus, engage with current students and inspire alumni to continue to nurture their relationship with American University and the alumni community. 

If you graduated from American University, you left campus but not the AU community.
This is our AU!
