AU Campus
Daniel Myers

Welcome to the Office of the Provost at American University!

With our location in the nation’s capital, wide range of exceptional academic programs, and expert faculty, AU provides students with a rich educational experience that few other institutions can match.

As you continue to explore the AU website, you’ll learn about our eight schools and colleges, as well as our nationally recognized centers and institutes. You’ll discover the countless resources AU students are able to access here on campus and beyond—from living learning communities and study abroad programs to research opportunities and professional internships. Our accomplished students also receive incomparable support in their pursuit of competitive merit awards and fellowships.

Even though I am new to American, I’ve already been deeply impressed by the ways in which our talented faculty and staff colleagues consistently strive for improvement. We’ve recently introduced the new American University Experience (AUx) and launched a redesigned AU Core Curriculum. We have also opened the new Don Myers Technology and Innovation Building and broken ground on a state-of-the art Hall of Science.

I encourage you to come visit campus and see what AU could offer you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at provost@american.edu if I can help you in any way.
