News and Community Voices

AUP Community Blog

The AUP Community Blog was a place for global explorers to share stories and resources with their peers and colleagues. Originally developed as the AUP at Home blog during the French confinement period of Spring semester 2020, the blog allowed community members to share contributions on the subjects they find most important, while supporting one another with common resources.

These stories proved vital to telling the AUP story authentically. That's why, as of Fall semester 2022, you'll now find community stories integrated into the main university news page. Don’t hesitate to reach out to (subject: Pitch%20for%20a%20Community%20Story) with your pitches for articles.
