President's Alumni Advisory Council

In the fall of 2013, The American University of Paris inaugurated the President’s Alumni Advisory Council (PAAC) in the US, shortly followed by a similar structure in Europe in 2014 and in the Middle East in 2016. The Council, whose members are nominated by the president, draws upon the considerable talents of a select group of alumni who have shown an interest in greater involvement with their alma mater. The purpose of the President’s Alumni Advisory Council is to advance the interests of and to support the University, to act as a sounding board for the President and a conduit from alumni to the University, and to provide logistical support on the ground for AUP’s alumni engagement, recruitment and advancement efforts.
