AUPDC: The American University of Paris Alumni Chapter of Greater Washington, DC
AUPDC: The American University of Paris Alumni Chapter of Greater Washington, DC


The alumni who plan and enjoy events together share a vision that we hope is shared by all of you. Our objective is to build on the special experience of AUP and to recreate in some small way the unique community we enjoyed there. Just as important, we want to have fun doing all this and in the long run support the University that gave us the chance to be part of this small yet unique set of individuals.


The Chapter is also looking into other areas, such as fundraising, and various program foci. For example, we are looking to expand an internship opportunity program for AUP students. This is all while enjoying the great social events and interaction with AUP. Please plan to be a part of it and make it your Chapter.


Please Contact Us to express your ideas about the ways that we can expand or to suggest Chapter events.

Do you want to become a Chapter officer?

What fun is life if it doesn't involve change? The current officers are ready and willing to pass the baton to a new group of AUP alumni/attendees who live in the DC area. If you'd like to be more involved with AUP, volunteer to take on an officer's role and make this Chapter your own!
