At AU, we rely on alumni leaders to bridge the gap between the campus and our more than 120,000 alumni living and working in DC, around the country, and across the world. Whether serving as chapter leaders, class reunion chairs, or volunteers for our boards and councils, our alumni volunteers serve as ambassadors for AU and work hard to engage fellow alumni in the life of the university.

The AU Alumni Board
The American University Alumni Board is made up of a dedicated group of volunteers who serve as ambassadors for the university and work to actively engage other alumni in the life of the university.

Alliances and Interest Groups
American University has a broad range of alumni affinity groups and networks that eagerly seek your active participation. Affinity groups and networks that celebrate and support identity, industry, leisure, student activities, and student experience may be found here.
