|executive vice president's message|
Since its inception, AUD has committed itself to providing a world-class education that prepares students academically, personally and professionally for successful careers in their chosen fields. Our mission is to promote learning and to help students to succeed and fulfill their dreams. At AUD, the success of our students is paramount.
Our educational approach is process-oriented; our emphasis is on bridging theory and practice, and in learning through collaboration and participation. We strive to ensure that the time spent at the university is a time of growth, discovery and achievement. Our focus is on the student, and the successes that our alumni have achieved are evidence of that attention.
To that end, AUD seeks to nurture thoughtful, well-informed, articulate individuals, committed to improving the wellbeing of selves and the community. As an educational institution in one of the most diverse countries in the world, AUD serves as a cultural, social and intellectual center for the community and as a resource and partner for business and industry.
Our expert faculty posses a passion for excellence in teaching and our staff are dedicated to supporting the academic endeavors of our students. Our campus culture is one of open and engaged liberal learning with a commitment to ethical standards. Small class sizes provide students with the opportunity to work closely with instructors.
This commitment to excellence in education is not limited to the classroom. The University offers an extensive scholarship program, as well as award-winning athletic teams, accomplished performing and visual arts programs, and an active student government - all of which provide a fulfilling and well-rounded university experience.
While this information will provide you with a brief introduction to our community, the best way to learn about the AUD is to visit us and experience the American University for yourself.
