March 27, also known as Founder's Day, is when we honor the vision of AUP's founder, Dr. Lloyd A. DeLamater, who believed that higher education could be a powerful vehicle for international cooperation and cultural exchange, a principle upon which he founded ACP/AUP. On this day, the Founder's Day Forum hosts faculty lectures on topics that resonate with this mission, thereby continuing DeLamater's legacy of rigorous academic principles in pursuit of the common good.
