Development Initiatives

As Africa's premier Development University, we are committed to sustainable development projects designed to improve the lives of the local community while exposing students to the realities and challenges facing their fellow citizens. Every student, no matter their major, is required to lend their time and talents to implementing constructive local outreach that will stimulate student understanding and underscore the importance of community service. The overarching goal is to prepare AUN students to be leaders who are knowledgeable, conscientious and engaged citizens of the 21st century.

AUN efforts were fundamental to having been recently chosen by the African Development Magazine as the "Best University in Development in Africa".
