FORWARD-LOOKING FOR PROMISING CAREERS
As a forward-looking University, we always align our academic programs to what the region, market, and world need. But the world is changing, and Transforming Lives will provide the resources to further strengthen both academic offerings and experiential learning needed to connect our hard-working students with tomorrow’s careers today.
CAMPUS-WIDE 21ST CENTURY LEARNING
To continue to serve our students personally – and remain relevant academically – we must invest in technology. Technology powers our research, our classrooms, and our career simulators. To provide for the future of learning, we need to modernize and expand our technological infrastructure.
MODERNIZING CLASSROOMS AND LEARNING SPACES
In order to meet our commitments to student-centered experience and hands-on learning, we train students for careers in buildings, labs, and spaces made for the respective fields of study. Transforming Lives will allow us to modernize facilities and create the space to grow key programs crucial for the future of work.
WITH OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL STUDENTS
The modern American University experience includes the enjoyment and character formation found in all manner of athletic competition. Our intramural and scholarship sports programs enrich the lives of our students, and also deepen the affection for – and involvement with – our alumni and the community at large.
