AULA community members represent every conceivable age, race, religion, sexual orientation and identity, and ethnicity. Their diverse backgrounds and life experiences are what give our campus its rich, inimitable culture. They are poets and entrepreneurs, firefighters and Fulbright scholars, community activists and New York Times bestselling authors.
Students at AULA come from all walks of life and every part of the country. Most of our students are returning to school, bringing with them a wealth of lived experience, both professionally and personally. Students at AULA are passionate and compassionate, eager to share their knowledge, challenge themselves and each other, and learn new ways to leave this world better than they found it.
Our faculty members are an eclectic group of scholars, authors, researchers, and reformers. They are individuals who truly love to teach, and take pride in their students’ achievements. Instructors serve as mentors and advisors who make themselves available to students throughout the program and beyond. In addition to teaching, most continue to work within their field, allowing them to share their own up-to-date, real-world experiences and best practices with their students.
AULA staff members are characterized by their readiness to help students navigate the world of higher education. They are problem-solvers who guide our adult learners through processes such as applying for financial aid, transferring credits, and enrolling in classes, so that students can spend less time worrying about paperwork and more time focusing on their education.
